       updmap [OPTION] ... [COMMAND]
       updmap-sys [OPTION] ... [COMMAND]

       updmap (TeX Live, multi) version $Id: updmap.pl 26891 2012-06-10 22:41:49Z karl $

       Update  the  default  font map files used by pdftex, dvips, and dvipdfm(x), and optionally
       pxdvi, as determined by all configuration files updmap.cfg (the ones returned  by  running
       "kpsewhich --all updmap.cfg", but see below).

       Among  other  things,  these map files are used to determine which fonts should be used as
       bitmaps and which as outlines, and to determine which font files are included in  the  PDF
       or PostScript output.

       By default, the TeX filename database (ls-R) is also updated.

       --cnffile FILE
	      read  FILE for the updmap configuration (can be given multiple times, in which case
	      all the files are used)

       --dvipdfmxoutputdir DIR
	      specify output directory (dvipdfm(x) syntax)

       --dvipsoutputdir DIR
	      specify output directory (dvips syntax)

       --pdftexoutputdir DIR
	      specify output directory (pdftex syntax)

       --pxdvioutputdir DIR
	      specify output directory (pxdvi syntax)

       --outputdir DIR
	      specify output directory (for all files)

       --copy cp generic files rather than using symlinks

	      recreate files even if config hasn't changed

	      do not recreate map files

	      do not run texhash

       -n, --dry-run
	      only show the configuration, no output

       --quiet, --silent
	      reduce verbosity

       --help show this message and exit

	      show version information and exit

       --showoption OPTION
	      show the current setting of OPTION

       --showoptions OPTION
	      show possible settings for OPTION

       --setoption OPTION VALUE
	      set OPTION to value; option names below

       --setoption OPTION=VALUE
	      as above, just different syntax

       --enable MAPTYPE MAPFILE
	      add "MAPTYPE MAPFILE" to updmap.cfg, where MAPTYPE is Map, MixedMap, or KanjiMap

       --enable Map=MAPFILE
	      add "Map MAPFILE" to updmap.cfg

       --enable MixedMap=MAPFILE add "MixedMap MAPFILE" to updmap.cfg

       --enable KanjiMap=MAPFILE add "KanjiMap MAPFILE" to updmap.cfg

       --disable MAPFILE
	      disable MAPFILE, of whatever type

	      list all active and inactive maps

	      same as --listmaps, but without unavailable map files

	      disable unavailable map files in updmap.cfg

       Explanation of the map types: the (only) difference  between  Map  and  MixedMap  is  that
       MixedMap  entries  are  not  added  to  psfonts_pk.map.	The purpose is to help users with
       devices that render Type 1 outline fonts worse than mode-tuned Type 1 bitmap  fonts.   So,
       MixedMap  is  used  for	fonts  that  are available as both Type 1 and Metafont.  KanjiMap
       entries are added to psfonts_t1.map and kanjix.map.

       Explanation of the OPTION names for --showoptions, --showoptions, --setoption:

	      true|false  (default true)

	      Whether dvips uses bitmaps or outlines, when both are available.

	      true|false  (default true)

	      Whether dvips includes the standard 35 PostScript fonts in its output.

	      true|false   (default true)

	      Whether pdftex includes the standard 14 PDF fonts in its output.

	      true|false  (default false)

	      Whether maps for pxdvi (Japanese-patched xdvi) are under updmap's control.

	      (any string)

	      (any string)

	      See below.

       LW35   URWkb|URW|ADOBEkb|ADOBE  (default URWkb)

	      Adapt the font and file names of the standard 35 PostScript  fonts.   URWkb     URW
	      fonts  with  "berry" filenames	(e.g. uhvbo8ac.pfb) URW      URW fonts with "ven-
	      dor" filenames   (e.g. n019064l.pfb) ADOBEkb  Adobe fonts  with  "berry"	filenames
	      (e.g.   phvbo8an.pfb)   ADOBE	 Adobe	 fonts	 with  "vendor"  filenames  (e.g.

	      These options are only read and acted on by updmap; dvips,  pdftex,  etc.,  do  not
	      know  anything  about  them.   They work by changing the default map file which the
	      programs read, so they can be overridden by specifying command-line options or con-
	      figuration files to the programs, as explained at the beginning of updmap.cfg.

	      The  options  kanjiEmbed	and  kanjiVariant specify special replacements in the map
	      lines.  If a map contains the string @kanjiEmbed@, then this will  be  replaced  by
	      the  value of that option; similarly for kanjiVariant.  In this way, users of Japa-
	      nese TeX can select different fonts to be included in the final output.

       Explanation of trees and files normally used:

	      If --cnffile is specified on  the  command  line	(possibly  multiple  times),  its
	      value(s)	are used.  Otherwise, updmap reads all the updmap.cfg files found by run-
	      ning `kpsewhich -all updmap.cfg', in the order  returned	by  kpsewhich,	with  one
	      exception:  an  updmap.cfg  found  in  TEXMFLOCAL is given higher priority than the
	      updmap.cfg in TEXMFMAIN, to ensure that local adjustments  by  administrators  take
	      precedence over what is shipped in TeX Live.

	      In  any case, if multiple updmap.cfg files are found, all the maps mentioned in all
	      the updmap.cfg files are merged.

	      Thus, if updmap.cfg files are present in all trees, and the default layout is  used
	      as shipped with TeX Live, the following files are read, in the given order.

	      For updmap-sys:
	      TEXMFSYSCONFIG $TEXLIVE/YYYY/texmf-config/web2c/updmap.cfg
	      TEXMFSYSVAR    $TEXLIVE/YYYY/texmf-var/web2c/updmap.cfg
	      TEXMFLOCAL     $TEXLIVE/texmf-local/web2c/updmap.cfg
	      TEXMFMAIN      $TEXLIVE/YYYY/texmf/web2c/updmap.cfg
	      TEXMFDIST      $TEXLIVE/YYYY/texmf-dist/web2c/updmap.cfg

	      For updmap:
	      TEXMFCONFIG    $HOME/.texliveYYYY/texmf-config/web2c/updmap.cfg
	      TEXMFVAR	     $HOME/.texliveYYYY/texmf-var/web2c/updmap.cfg
	      TEXMFHOME      $HOME/texmf/web2c/updmap.cfg
	      TEXMFSYSCONFIG $TEXLIVE/YYYY/texmf-config/web2c/updmap.cfg
	      TEXMFSYSVAR    $TEXLIVE/YYYY/texmf-var/web2c/updmap.cfg
	      TEXMFLOCAL     $TEXLIVE/texmf-local/web2c/updmap.cfg
	      TEXMFMAIN      $TEXLIVE/YYYY/texmf/web2c/updmap.cfg
	      TEXMFDIST      $TEXLIVE/YYYY/texmf-dist/web2c/updmap.cfg

	      (where YYYY is the TeX Live release version).

	      There is another exception to keep upgradability from earlier versions of TeX Live:
	      if a file TEXMFLOCAL/web2c/updmap-local.cfg exists (formerly used by tlmgr to merge
	      local  fonts),  then the file TEXMFLOCAL/web2c/updmap.cfg is ignored (if it exists)
	      and that updmap-local.cfg is used instead.  In this  case,  updmap  recognizes  the
	      previous syntax for disabling map files in updmap-local.cfg (this syntax is differ-
	      ent from what is used now).

	      According to the actions, updmap might write to one of the given files or create	a
	      new updmap.cfg, described further below.

	      Where  changes  are  saved: if config files are given on the command line, then the
	      first one given will be used to save any	changes  from  --setoption,  --enable  or
	      --disable.  If the config files are taken from kpsewhich output, then the algorithm
	      is more complex:

	      1) If $TEXMFCONFIG/web2c/updmap.cfg or $TEXMFHOME/web2c/updmap.cfg appears  in  the
	      list of used files, then the one listed first by kpsewhich --all (equivalently, the
	      one returned by kpsewhich updmap.cfg), is used.

	      2) If neither of the above two are present and changes are made, a new config  file
	      is created in $TEXMFCONFIG/web2c/updmap.cfg.

	      Resolving multiple definitions of a font:

	      If a font is defined in more than one map file, then the definition coming from the
	      first-listed updmap.cfg is used.	If a font is defined multiple  times  within  the
	      same map file, one is chosen arbitrarily.  In both cases a warning is issued.

	      Disabling maps:

	      updmap.cfg  files  with higher priority (listed earlier) can disable maps mentioned
	      in lower priority (listed later) updmap.cfg files by writing, e.g.,

	      #! Map mapname.map


	      #! MixedMap mapname.map

	      in the higher-priority updmap.cfg file.

	      As an example, suppose you have a copy of MathTime Pro fonts and	want  to  disable
	      the  Belleek  version  of the fonts; that is, disable the map belleek.map.  You can
	      create the file $TEXMFCONFIG/web2c/updmap.cfg with the content

	      #! Map belleek.map Map mt-plus.map Map mt-yy.map

	      and call updmap.

	      updmap writes the map files for dvips (psfonts.map) and pdftex (pdftex.map) to  the
	      TEXMFVAR/fonts/map/updmap/{dvips,pdftex}/ directories.

	      The log file is written to TEXMFVAR/web2c/updmap.log.

	      When  updmap-sys	is run, TEXMFSYSCONFIG and TEXMFSYSVAR are used instead of TEXMF-
	      CONFIG and TEXMFVAR, respectively.  This is the only difference between  updmap-sys
	      and updmap.

	      Other  locations	may  be used if you give them on the command line, or these trees
	      don't exist, or you are not using the original TeX Live.

	      To see the precise locations of the various files that will be  read  and  written,
	      give the -n option (or read the source).

       For    step-by-step    instructions   on   making   new	 fonts	 known	 to   TeX,   read
       http://tug.org/fonts/fontinstall.html.  For even more terse instructions, read the  begin-
       ning of updmap.cfg.

       Configuration and input files:

	      Main  configuration  file.  In texmf/web2c by default, but may be located elsewhere
	      depending on  your  distribution.   Each	texmf  tree  read  should  have  its  own

	      Map file for standard 35 PostScript fonts for use with dvips(1).

	      Map file for standard 35 PostScript fonts for use with pdftex(1).

	      Map file for standard 35 PostScript fonts for use with ps2pk(1).

       Output files:

	      For  dvips(1).  Same as psfonts_t1.map if option dvipsPreferOutline active, else as

	      For dvips(1).  Without information from MixedMap files.  (Setting  of  dvipsPrefer-
	      Outline ignored.)

	      For  dvips(1).   With information from MixedMap files.  (Setting of dvipsPreferOut-
	      line ignored.)

	      For dvips(1).  Always downloads the standard 35 fonts.  (Setting of  dvipsDownload-
	      Base35 ignored.)

	      For  dvips(1).   Never downloads the standard 35 fonts.  (Setting of dvipsDownload-
	      Base35 ignored.)

	      For pdftex(1).  Same as pdftex_dl14.map if option pdftexDownloadBase14 active, else
	      as pdftex_ndl14.map.

	      For pdftex(1).  Always downloads the standard 14 fonts.

	      For pdftex(1).  Never downloads the standard 14 fonts.

	      Similar  to  psfonts.map	file,  but forces all fonts to be downloaded, so this map
	      file can be used with xdvi(1) and ps2pk(1).

       Configuration files for dvips(1):

	      Loads builtin35.map instead of psfonts.map.

	      Loads download35.map instead of psfonts.map.

	      Loads psfonts_t1.map instead of psfonts.map.

	      Loads psfonts_t1.map instead of psfonts.map and has  additional  optimizations  for
	      PDF generation.

	      Loads psfonts_pk.map instead of psfonts.map.

	      Loads  psfonts_t1.map  instead  of  psfonts.map.	 (For compatibility with old ver-

	      Loads psfonts_t1.map instead of psfonts.map.
