       afm2tfm - convert Adobe font metrics to TeX font metrics

       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 conversion.  For more information, print out the dvips manual.

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

       dvips(1), tex(1), vptovf(1)

       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.
