The file corelfonts is a perl script which will install all the PostScript
Type 1 fonts supplied on the Corel Ventura 5 CD (and probably with other
versions of Corel Ventura and Corel Draw). These fonts are from Bitstream.
Running this script will copy the afm and pfb files from the Corel CD and
run fontinst on them to create tfm, vf, fd and sty files for use with 
LaTeX. The fonts, font descriptions and LaTeX package files are installed
to subdirectories in your TeXMF tree.

Installation is simply a matter of running the script with perl and telling
your tex system about the new fonts and packages. The instructions here work
for teTeX running on FreeBSD 4.7 and fpTeX running on Windows XP, but they
ought to work with minor variations on other systems.

	Unix:	chmod +x corelfonts
			Edit your config.ps file (probably located at texmf/dvips/config)
			to include the line:
				p +bitstrea.map
			Then run texhash to update the filename database.
	Win32:	perl corelfonts
			Edit your updmap.cfg file (probably located at texmf/web2c)
			to include the line:
				Map bitstrea.map
			Then run updmap to update the filename database.
Just include a line such as \usepackage{sabon} in the preamble to your
LaTeX document and the default font will be Sabon (Garamond). Have a look
through the texmf/tex/latex/bitstrea directory to see which packages are
available. Each package supplies a font family.

Apart from the fact that I had these Corel (Bitstream) fonts lying around
and wanted to use them with LaTeX, this was simply an exercise in learning
perl for me. If you find the script useful I will be delighted, but I cannot
take responsibility for any problems you might have with it. Please let me
know if you find the script useful though. I can be contacted by email
as tony@thenoc.org.uk
