fontimport - import fonts into the teTeX directory structure SYNOPSIS
fontimport [-d] [-f] [-t] [-m MF-mode] path ... DESCRIPTION
fontimport imports TFM and PK font files into appropriate places in the teTeX directory tree and revises teTeX's filename database accord- ingly. Each path may be a font file or a directory, either absolute or relative to the current directory. All subdirectories of a given directory are searched for font files. Don't specify directory names that are symbolic links, however, since (at least some versions of) find(1) won't dereference them. A font's destination is determined by variables in the file texmf.cnf. By default, fontimport will issue a warning to stderr instead of overwriting an existing font file. The -f flag forces overwriting. fontimport can cope with font names conforming the 8.3-namescheme, too, so you can import fonts from either a TDS-compliant or MSDOS installation. emTeX's font libraries are not supported. If you want to import fonts from a font library, you need to unpack it with emTeX's fontlib utility first. The full pathname of each font successfully imported is echoed to stdout. When fontimport can not parse a font's name, it will import the font using a path element of "/unknown/" and issue a warning on stderr. fontimport tries to guess the mode of PK files. With the -m flag you may specify a fallback mode to be used if the mode can't be guessed. Options: -m MF-MODE default Metafont mode for PK files if autodetection fails -d delete delete font files after copying (i.e., move them) -f force overwrite existing fonts -t test just echo each font's destination (if any); don't move or copy SEE ALSO

kpsetool - script to make teTeX-style kpsetool, kpsexpand, and kpsepath available SYNOPSIS
kpsetool [ OPTIONS... ] COMMAND kpsexpand [ OPTIONS... ] STRING kpsepath [ OPTIONS... ] PATHTYPE DESCRIPTION
kpsetool is a Bourne shell script that makes a teTeX-style kpsetool, kpsexpand, and kpsepath available. kpsetool uses web2c's (new) kpsex- pand binary, so the syntax for kpsexpand is incompatible with teTeX's as of version 0.4. OPTIONS
-m mode set Metafont mode -n progname pretend to be progname to kpathsea -p act like kpsepath(1) -v act like kpsexpand(1) -w act like kpsewhich(1) USAGE
