       download - host resident PostScript font downloader

       download [-f] [-p printer] [-m name] [-H directory]


       download prepends host resident fonts to files and writes the results on the standard out-
       put. If no files are specified, or if - is one of the input files, the standard	input  is
       read.  download assumes the input files make up a single PostScript job and that requested
       fonts can be included at the start of each input file.

       Requested fonts are named in a comment (marked with %%DocumentFonts:) in the input  files.
       Available fonts are the ones listed in the map table selected using the -m option.

       The  map table consists of fontname-file pairs. The fontname is the full name of the Post-
       Script font, exactly as it would appear in a %%DocumentFonts: comment.  The  file  is  the
       pathname  of  the host resident font. A file that begins with a / is used as is. Otherwise
       the pathname is relative to the host font directory. Comments are introduced by %  (as  in
       PostScript) and extend to the end of the line.

       The  only  candidates for downloading are  fonts listed in the map table  that point down-
       load to readable files. A font is downloaded once, at most. Requests for unlisted fonts or
       inaccessible files are ignored. All requests are ignored if the map table can not be read.

       -f	       Force  a  complete  scan of each input file. In the absence of an explicit
		       comment pointing download to the end of the file, the default  scan  stops
		       immediately after the PostScript header comments.

       -p printer      Check the list of printer-resident fonts in /etc/lp/printers/printer/resi-
		       dentfonts before downloading.

       -m name	       Use name as the font map table. A name that begins  with  /  is	the  full
		       pathname  of  the map table and is used as is. Otherwise  name is appended
		       to the pathname of the host font directory.

       -H directory    Use dir as the host font directory. The default is /usr/lib/lp/postscript.

       Example 1 Examples of the download command.

       The following  map table could be used to control the downloading of the Bookman font fam-

	 % The first string is the full PostScript font name. The second string
	 % is the file name - relative to the host font directory unless it begins
	 % with a /.
	     Bookman-Light		 bookman/light
	     Bookman-LightItalic      bookman/lightitalic
	     Bookman-Demi		bookman/demi
	     Bookman-DemiItalic      bookman/demiitalic

       Using  the  file myprinter/map (in the default host font directory)  as the map table, you
       could download fonts  by issuing the following command:

	 example% download -m myprinter/map file

       The following exit values are returned:

       0	   Successful completion.

       non-zero    An error occurred.

       See attributes(5) for descriptions of the following attributes:

       The download program should be part of a more general program.

       download  does  not  look  for %%PageFonts: comments and there is no way to force multiple
       downloads of a particular font.

       Using full pathnames in either map tables or the names of map tables is not recommended.
