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.
