NAME
       afm2tfm - convert Adobe font metrics to TeX font metrics

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  conver-
       sion.  For more information, print out the dvips manual.

FILES
       psfonts.map in the config directory used by dvips (update this).
       ../afm/Makefile in the dvips sources (look at this for examples).

SEE ALSO
       dvips(1), tex(1), vptovf(1)

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.

AUTHORS
       Tomas Rokicki <rokicki@cs.stanford.edu> and Donald E. Knuth

NAME
vptovf - convert virtual property lists to virtual font metrics SYNOPSIS
vptovf [-verbose] vpl_name[.vpl] [vfm_name[.vf] [tfm_name[.tfm]]] DESCRIPTION
This manual page is not meant to be exhaustive. The complete documentation for this version of TeX can be found in the info file or manual Web2C: A TeX implementation. The vptovf program translates a (human-oriented) property list file to a pair of (program-oriented) files in the VF (virtual font) and TFM (TeX font metric) formats. Thus, a virtual font file can be edited and its exact contents can be displayed mnemonically. New virtual fonts, which map characters as seen by TeX into an arbitrary sequence of low-level typesetting operations, can also be created in this way. All three filenames, vpl_name, vf_name, and tfm_name, are extended with the appropriate suffix, if they lack one. OPTIONS
Without the -verbose option, vptovf operates silently. With it, a banner and progress report are printed on stdout. SEE ALSO
pltotf(1), tftopl(1), vftovp(1). AUTHORS
Donald E. Knuth wrote the program, based in part on an idea of David Fuchs, starting with the code for pltotf(1). Karl Berry adapted it for compilation with web2c. Web2C 2012 16 December 1994 VPTOVF(1)
