The package below has been updated at tug.ctan.org and should soon be at your local mirror. Jim Hefferon Saint Michael's College ....................................................................... The following information was provided by our fellow contributor: Name of contribution: recycle Author's name: Ian Green, Scott Pakin Location on CTAN: /fonts/recycle Summary description: A font providing the "recyclable" logo License type: gpl Announcement text:
As Ian Green's recycle.readme states, recycle.mf "is awful code and doesn't even put the logo in a box (properly)". In practical terms, this means that recycle.mf produces a number of Metafont "Inconsistent equation" errors, which break many of the scripts that process Metafont fonts. Fortunately, running Metafont manually and forcing it to ignore errors does seem to produce valid output. To ease the pain of using the recycling symbol in (La)TeX documents and to enable the recycling symbol to look good at arbitrary scale I hereby provide recycle.pfb, a PostScript Type 1 version of recycle.mf. recycle.pfb was produced by running recycle.mf through mf2pt1 and tweaking the resulting Type 1 font in FontForge to relocate a few control points to integral coordinates and to remove a self-intersecting path.
