Prescius Gothic. The pgoth fonts TBD The pgothic and allpgoth packages provide Metafont fonts based on the Gothic Textura Prescius vel sine pedibus manuscript book-hand used from the 13th century AD. The font consists of majuscules, minuscules and digits, with some appropriate period punctuation marks. Both normal and bold versions are provided. This is one in a series of manuscript fonts. Access to the docmfp package is desireable but not essential. The distribution consists of the following files: README (this file) pgothic.ins pgothic.dtx tryfont.tex allfont.tex The distribution is provided under the terms of the LaTeX Project Public License (LPPL). To install the package: ======================= o run: latex pgothic.ins, which will generate: pgoth*.mf files *.fd files pgothic.sty allpgoth.sty o Move the generated files to locations where LaTeX will find them. For example: the pgoth*.mf files to .../texmf/fonts/source/public/pgothic the *.fd and *.sty files to /texmf/tex/latex/local/pgothic On a teTeX distribution you might also have to add lines like the following to texmf/fontname/special.map: pgoth7.mf public pgothic pgoth10.mf public pgothic pgoth17.mf public pgothic pgothb7.mf public pgothic pgothb10.mf public pgothic pgothb17.mf public pgothic On a teTeX distribution remember to run texhash after moving the files. (I use a teTeX distribution and found that if I didn't add to the special.map file, then the generated tfm and pk files were put in directories corresponding to some vendor's font.) Other LaTeX distributions might require procedures similar to those for teTeX. To typeset the documentation: ============================= o run: latex pgothic.dtx o if you want an index then run: makeindex -s gind.ist pgothic o run: latex pgothic.dtx o Print pgothic.dvi for a hardcopy of the package manual Note that the docmfp package is normally required for LaTeXing pgothic.dtx. The package is available from CTAN in tex-archive/macros/latex/contrib/supported. If you haven't got this and don't want to get it, then there are instructions in the first part of the .dtx file about how to edit it to avoid the use of docmfp. (docmfp is an extension of the doc package for describing METAFONT, or other non-LaTeX, code.) To check out your installation: =============================== o run: latex tryfont for a testpage of the fonts o run: latex allfont for a document typeset with the fonts 2002/12/30 Peter Wilson email@example.com
