mft program creates a T\h-0.1667m\v0.20vE\v-0.20v\h-0.125mX file from a METAFONT or MetaPost program.
It takes appropriate care of typographic details like page
layout and the use of indentation, italics, boldface, etc., as illustrated
in the book
Computer Modern Typefaces. Special conventions in METAFONT and MetaPost comments allow you to control things that

mft program uses an optional change file (which works just as the change files to
