A pack­age has been up­dated on tug.ctan.org and should soon be at your fa­vorite mir­ror. Thank you for the up­load, Jim Hef­feron ====================================================================== 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 di­rectly from Meta­font source Li­cense type: lppl An­nounce­ment text given by the pack­age's con­trib­u­tor: - - ---------------------------------------------------------------------- mf2pt1 fa­cil­i­tates pro­duc­ing PostScript Type 1 fonts di­rectly from a Meta­font source file with­out los­ing qual­ity to au­to­trac­ers. mf2pt1 is not, as the name may im­ply, an au­to­matic con­verter of ar­bi­trary Meta­font fonts to Type 1 for­mat. The pro­gram im­poses a num­ber of re­stric­tions on the Meta­font in­put. If these re­stric­tions are met, mf2pt1 will pro­duce valid Type 1 out­put with more ac­cu­rate con­trol points than can be re­verse-en­gi­neered by TeX­trace, mf­trace, and other pro­grams which con­vert bitmaps to out­line fonts. Ver­sion 2.0 sports the fol­low­ing im­prove­ments over the pre­vi­ous ver­sion: * A new --round­ing op­tion en­ables con­trol points to be placed with higher pre­ci­sion. * Fonts are au­to­mat­i­cally run through t1asm to con­vert them from "dis­as­sem­bled" for­mat to true .pfb font files. * Fonts are au­to­mat­i­cally run through Fon­tForge, if avail­able, to clean up curves and au­to­mat­i­cally add font-hint­ing in­for­ma­tion. A new --ff­script op­tion lets the user over­ride the de­fault Fon­tForge script. * mf2pt1 in­cludes a workaround for a Me­taPost "turn­ingnum­ber" bug. * A new "glyph_name" com­mand and "asis" en­cod­ing vec­tor en­able font pro­grams to spec­ify their own en­cod­ings -- use­ful for cre­at­ing a large font out of mul­ti­ple 256-char­ac­ter fonts. * mf2pt1 now sup­ports an en­cod­ing vec­tor for TeX T1 (i.e., 8-bit) en­cod­ing. * There are var­i­ous bug fixes, code cleanups, and doc­u­men­ta­tion im­prove­ments. - - ---------------------------------------------------------------------- You can have a look at the pack­age at http://tug.ctan.org/tex-archive/sup­port/mf2pt1/ al­though you may get a bet­ter net­work con­nec­tion by vis­it­ing a mir­ror of CTAN that is near to you; see http://www.ctan.org/tex-archive/README.mir­rors .
