SYNOPSIS

psfonts [ files ... ]

psdownload [ options ] [ files ... ]

DESCRIPTION

Plan 9’s troff(1) and tr2post(1) use non-standard PostScript fonts (found in /usr/local/plan9/postscript/font). Before sending PostScript output from tr2post to a standard printer, code implementing the non-standard fonts must be added to the PostScript.

Psfonts copies files (or standard input) to standard output, adding necessary PostScript fonts.

Psdownload is the more general program used to implement psfonts. The options are:
-ccomment
  Expect the fonts used in the document to be listed in a comment beginning with this string (default %%DocumentFonts:).
-fatend
  Expect extra fonts comments at the end of the document, so read the entire input before starting output (by default this only happens if a %%DocumentFonts: (atend) comment is encountered).
-mmapfile
  Use mapfile to translate from PostScript font names to files. Each line in the map has two white space-separated fields: a font name and the corresponding file. If mapfile is not a rooted path, it is evaluated relative to the fontdir (see -H below).
-pprinter
  Set the name of the printer. This option is deprecated. Its only effect is to override the -r option, causing fontdir/printers/printer to be used as the resident fonts list.
-rresidentfonts
  Read a list of fonts assumed to be on the printer (not necessary to re-download) from the file residentfonts. If residentfonts is not a rooted path, it is evaluated relative to the fontdir (see -H below).
-Hfontdir
  Set the directory that is assumed to contain the PostScript fonts and information about printers (see -m, -p, and -r above; default /usr/local/plan9/postscript/font).
-Ttmpdir
  Use tmpdir for storing temporary files (default /var/tmp).
-D Produce copious amounts of debugging information on standard error.
-I Continue running even after fatal errors occur.

EXAMPLE

See tr2post(1) for an example.
