The pack­age be­low has been up­dated on tug.ctan.org and should soon be at your fa­vorite mir­ror. Thank you, Jim Hef­feron Saint Michael's Col­lege .................................................................... The fol­low­ing in­for­ma­tion was pro­vided by our fel­low 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:
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. This up­date fixes a few mi­nor bugs and adds sup­port for a new --bpp­pix com­mand-line op­tion that lets the user spec­ify the num­ber of "big" points per pixel that Me­taPost uti­lizes.

mf2pt1 – Pro­duce PostScript Type 1 fonts from source

mf2pt1 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.
