cor­rected ver­sion of type­1cm.sty

Date: Septem­ber 5, 2002 11:31:05 AM CEST
i have con­tacted david carlisle, the au­thor of type­1cm.sty, and with his per­mis­sion i have cor­rected the er­rors in the pack­age that i know about. i have in­stalled the new ver­sion of the pack­age source on ctan - macros/la­tex/con­trib/sup­ported/type­1cm/type­1cm.fdd there were two er­rors i knew of (in the cod­ing of the use of cmbx and cmti fonts), and bob ten­nent pointed out a third, in the use of eu­ex10. if any­one should spot any fur­ther prob­lem with this new ver­sion of the pack­age, they should re­port it to me and i'll put it right on the archive. there shouldn't be any, since i've scanned the file for other er­rors ... but i missed euex :-( Robin Fair­bairns For the CTAN team

type­1cm – Ar­bi­trary size font se­lec­tion in

, by de­fault, re­stricts the sizes at which you can use its de­fault com­puter mod­ern fonts, to a fixed set of dis­crete sizes (ef­fec­tively, a set spec­i­fied by Knuth). The type­1cm pack­age re­moves this re­stric­tion; this is par­tic­u­larly use­ful when us­ing scal­able ver­sions of the cm fonts (Bakoma, or the ver­sions from BSR/Y&Y, or True Type ver­sions from Kinch, PC, etc.). In fact, since mod­ern dis­tri­bu­tions will au­to­mat­i­cally gen­er­ate any bitmap font you might need, type­1cm has wider ap­pli­ca­tion than just those us­ing scaleable ver­sions of the fonts.

Note that the dis­tri­bu­tion now con­tains a pack­age fix-cm, which per­forms the task of type­1cm, as well as do­ing the same job for T1- and TS1-en­coded ec fonts.
