1. NAME

font2afm - create font metrics (in afm format) for (almost) any font file

2. SYNOPSIS

font2afm [options] font ...

font2afm [options] @filelist

3. DESCRIPTION

font2afm generates font metrics (in Adobe's afm format) for Type1, TrueType and OpenType fonts.

font2afm is just a wrapper script around several utilities (cfftot1, pf2afm, ttf2afm, pfm2kpx and ot2kpx) that do the real work. All these utilities need to be available on your system.

4. OPTIONS

-f 4 Force overwriting of existing afm files.

5. FILES

font 4 This can be any Type1 (in either pfa or pfb format), TrueType or OpenType (both PostScript- and TrueType-flavored) font.

filelist 4 This should contain a newline-separated list of font filenames.

6. SEE ALSO

pf2afm (part of GhostScript), ttf2afm (part of pdfTeX), afm2afm, autoinst, cmap2enc, ot2kpx, pfm2kpx, cfftot1 (part of Eddie Kohler's LCDF TypeTools).
