I in­stalled the pack­age in CTAN:macros/generic/ofs. The pack­age has an in­di­vid­u­ally worded li­cense which I'd like to sort un­der the li­cense type 'other'. I be­lieve it to be free enough to have it put in the 'of­fi­cial' CTAN tree in­stead of the 'CTAN:/non­free' di­rec­tory tree. Rein­hard Zierke for the CTAN team

ofs – Macros for man­ag­ing large font col­lec­tions

OFS (Ol­sak's Font Sys­tem) is a set of Plain and macros for man­ag­ing large font col­lec­tions; it has been used by Czech/Slo­vak users for many years. Main fea­tures in­clude:

  • Map­ping from long names of fonts to the met­ric file name. The user can spec­ify only ex­act long names in doc­u­ments.
  • Sup­port for many font en­cod­ings.
  • Print­ing of cat­a­logues of fonts and test sam­ples of font fam­i­lies; the in­ter­ac­tive macro \show­fonts shows all font fam­i­lies you have in­stalled via OFS.
  • The user in­ter­face is the same for Plain and for , but the im­ple­men­ta­tion dif­fers: the vari­ant of OFS uses NFSS, but the Plain vari­ant im­ple­ments its own font man­age­ment (which may even be bet­ter than NFSS)
  • Sup­port for math fonts in­clud­ing TX fonts.
