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.
