A package has been updated at tug.ctan.org and should soon be at your favorite mirror. Thanks, as usual, Jim Hefferon St Michael's College ====================================================================== The following information was provided by the package's contributor. Name of contribution: mf2pt1 Author's name: Scott Pakin Location on CTAN: /support/mf2pt1 Summary description: Produce PostScript Type 1 fonts from Metafont source License type: lppl Announcement text given by the package's contributor:
mf2pt1 facilitates producing PostScript Type 1 fonts from a Metafont source file. mf2pt1's advantage over tools such as TeXtrace and mftrace is that it does not rely on bitmap tracing and therefore can produce higher-quality Type 1 fonts than trace-based tools. The catch is that mf2pt1 imposes a number of restrictions on the Metafont input so it is not, as the name may imply, an automatic converter of arbitrary Metafont fonts to Type 1 format. Version 2.2 fixes some bugs involving the processing of command-line options.

mf2pt1 – Convert stylized to PostScript Type 1

mf2pt1 is a Perl script that facilitates producing PostScript Type 1 fonts from a source file. It is not, as the name may imply, an automatic converter of arbitrary fonts to Type 1 format. mf2pt1 imposes a number of restrictions on the input. If these restrictions are met, mf2pt1 will produce valid Type 1 output with more accurate control points than can be reverse-engineered by trace, mftrace, and other programs which convert bitmaps to outline fonts.
