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 conversion.

       For all the details, see the dvips manual (http://tug.org/dvips).


FILES

       psfonts.map in the config directory used by dvips.

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.
