$Id: README,v 0.70 2004/09/30 00:00:00 lehman pub $ END-OF-LIFE ANNOUNCEMENT As of September 30, 2004, ttf2tex is no longer maintained or in any way supported by its original author. Active development of the script has in fact already stopped in September 2002. Be advised that, even though ttf2tex may still work, there is no support in case of a problem and there will be no further updates. ABOUT ttf2tex is a script for the Bash shell which generates all files required to use TrueType fonts from a set of .ttf files. In short, it will do for TrueType fonts what fontinst's \latinfamily command does for Type 1 Postscript fonts. In addition to that, it creates map files and installs all files according to the TeX Directory Structure. The script is designed for Unix systems running teTeX. It should also work with TeX Live on Unix. It was reported to work under several Linux flavors, FreeBSD, and MacOS X with Fink. See the file ttf2tex.pdf for requirements, usage instructions, and some general information concerning the use of TrueType fonts with TeX.
