– A system for specifying fonts

The program takes a programmatic specification of a font, and produces a bitmap font (whose properties are defined by a set of parameters of the target device), and metrics for use by .

The bitmap output may be converted into a format directly usable by a device driver, etc., by the tools provided in the parallel mfware distribution. Third parties have developed tools to convert the bitmap output to outline fonts.

The distribution includes the source of Knuth’s book; this source is there to read, as an example of writing — it should not be processed without Knuth’s direct permission.

The mailing list tex-fonts@math.utah.edu is the best for general discussion of usage; the tex-k@tug.org list is best for bug reports about building the software, etc.
