simfon.mf        5616  10-03-94  'driver file' for Simple.

The toolkit contains the following functions, which work on the
'currentpicture' (the character glyph as Metafont has hit in
memory at the moment of the application of the function)

outline(a)       outline a character. 'a' controls thickness of
                 outline, and is a fraction of character width 'w'.
douboutline(a,b) keep the character, and draw an outline of
                 thickness 'a' at distance 'b' around it.
gentile          generate a tiling pattern. See the mftools.mf
                 file and the example cmbugs.mf for its use.
                 After this, do a 'tilepicture:=currentpicture".
tilepic(til)     apply tiling pattern 'til' to the character
                 glyph in memory (pictures are 'AND'ed).
otilepic(til,a)  apply tiling pattern 'til' to the character, and
                 create an outline of the character. The character
                 and tiling are 'AND'ed, the outline is 'OR'ed.
xmirror          reflect around axis x=0.5w.
ymirror          reflect around axis y=0.5(h+d).
reversevideo     invert the 'currentpicture'. Boundary: (w * (h+d)).

Happy Metafonting,
