CTAN up­date – pk­fix 1.2

Date: Jan­uary 29, 2005 9:24:24 PM CET
On Sat, 29 Jan 2005, Heiko Oberdiek sub­mit­ted ver­sion 1.2 of the pack­age 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. Li­cense: LPPL Lo­ca­tion on CTAN: sup­port/pk­fix/ Changes of v1.2: * Bug fix: Merg­ing is now based on type 1 names. This solves the prob­lem, if dif­fer­ent bitmap fonts maps to the same type 1 font, eg. (ecr­m1000, lar­m1000) -> SFRM1000. * Sup­pres­sion of PK gen­er­a­tion, if en­vi­ron­ment vari­able MKTEXPK is sup­ported. * If out­put file is "-" (stan­dard out­put) then mes­sages of pk­fix are writ­ten to stan­dard er­ror out­put, re­sult­ing in bet­ter pipe sup­port. 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.
