afm2tfm - convert Adobe font metrics to TeX font metrics
2. DESCRIPTION ▲
PostScript fonts are (or should be) accompanied by font metric files such as
Times-Roman.afm, which describes the characteristics of the font called Times-Roman. To use such fonts with TeX, we need TFM files that contain similar information. This program does that conversion. For more information, print out the dvips manual.
3. FILES ▲
psfonts.map in the config directory used by dvips (update this).
../afm/Makefile in the dvips sources (look at this for examples).
4. SEE ALSO ▲
5. BUGS ▲
An option to add letterspacing to the virtual font was rejected by Knuth because it would make the fi and fl ligatures break the normal rhythmic pattern.
