CTAN update – pkfix 1.1

Date: January 29, 2005 5:01:08 PM CET
On Fri, 28 Jan 2005, Heiko Oberdiek submitted version 1.1 of his pkfix package. License is LPPL. Location on CTAN: support/pkfix/ Short description of pkfix: Some PostScript files with bitmapped fonts contain comments, added by dvips. Then pkfix tries to find the type 1 versions of the font and replaces them. Changes of v1.1: * Bug fix: embedded encodings are now detected and used. * The temporary dvi files are now written directly. Thus pkfix does not depend on TeX (but on dvips) and runs faster. Thanks for the update, I installed it. For the CTAN Team Rainer Schöpf

pkfix – Replace pk fonts in PostScript with Type 1 fonts

The perl script pkfix looks for DVIPSBitmapFont comments in PostScript files, generated by ‘not too old’ dvips, and replaces them by type 1 versions of the fonts, if possible.
