a2ac, ver. 2, Juni 1995,  Petr Olsak (Ol\v{s}\'ak), olsak@math.feld.cvut.cz

The program a2ac (Afm To Afm plus Composites) enables to use
PostScript fonts while typesetting texts in languages where accented
letters are used. The font doesn't need to contain complete alphabet
of a given language; the presence of mere accents themselves (no whole
accented characters) is sufficient. The configuration files of the
a2ac program are independent on the PostScript font encoding and on
the typesetting system encoding. The program may be used to prepare a
font for any typesetting system, but only \TeX{} was tested. Program
was compiled for operation systems SUN OS, Linux and on DOS. May be, the
program will work in others systems with C compiler.

Program can be compiled in UNIX-like systems by the following line:

cc a2ac.c -lm -o a2ac

The make file is not necessary.

a2ac – AFM to AFM plus Com­pos­ites

En­ables the use of PostScript fonts while type­set­ting texts in lan­guages where in­flected let­ters are used. The font will typ­i­cally not con­tain the com­plete al­pha­bet of a given lan­guage; the pro­gram will de­rive com­pos­ite glyph struc­tures us­ing ac­cent glyphs, and out­put their de­tails in the de­rived AFM file.

The con­fig­u­ra­tion files of the pro­gram are in­de­pen­dent of the PostScript font en­cod­ing and of the type­set­ting sys­tem en­cod­ing. The pro­gram may be used to pre­pare a font for any type­set­ting sys­tem, es­pe­cially .
