CTAN update: mf2pt1

Date: May 3, 2014 6:16:04 AM CEST
Scott Pakin submitted an update to the mf2pt1 package. Version number: 2.5a License type: lppl Summary description: Produce PostScript Type 1 fonts from Metafont source. Announcement text:
mf2pt1 facilitates producing PostScript Type 1 fonts from a Metafont source file. mf2pt1's advantage over tools such as TeXtrace and mftrace is that it does not rely on bitmap tracing and therefore can produce higher-quality Type 1 fonts than trace-based tools. The catch is that mf2pt1 imposes a number of restrictions on the Metafont input so it is not, as the name may imply, an automatic converter of arbitrary Metafont fonts to Type 1 format. Version 2.5a is simply a documentation update in preparation for TeX Live 2014.

Thanks for the upload. For the CTAN Team Manfred Lotz

mf2pt1 – Convert stylized to PostScript Type 1

mf2pt1 is a Perl script that facilitates producing PostScript Type 1 fonts from a source file. It is not, as the name may imply, an automatic converter of arbitrary fonts to Type 1 format. mf2pt1 imposes a number of restrictions on the input. If these restrictions are met, mf2pt1 will produce valid Type 1 output with more accurate control points than can be reverse-engineered by trace, mftrace, and other programs which convert bitmaps to outline fonts.
