afm2afm - reencode an afm file
2. SYNOPSIS ▲
afm2afm 8 [-help] [-encoding encodingfile] [-output outputfile] afmfile
3. DESCRIPTION ▲
afm2afm re-encodes an afm file.
Metrics (including kerning data) for characters not present in the chosen encoding are excluded from the output, which resuls in much smaller files.
Note that if you don't specify an encoding file, the afm file isn't re-encoded, but the unused data is still pruned.
The program also generates an entry for a dvips-style map file, but only if the afm file has been re-encoded and the output was written to file (i.e., if both the -encoding and -output options were specified).
4. OPTIONS AND ARGUMENTS ▲
-help 4 Print a short description of the syntax
-encoding encodingfile 4 Re-encode to the enconding in encodingfile
-output outputfile 4 Write the result to outputfile instead of « stdout ».
afmfile 4 The afm file to be re-encoded.
Option names may be shortened to a unique prefix.
