Doublestroke Font V1.111 27th of August, 2002 ------------------------ This font is based on the Computer Modern Roman family of fonts by D. E. Knuth. It is useful for typesetting the mathematical symbols for the natural numbers (N), whole numbers (Z), rational numbers (Q), real numbers (R) and complex numbers (C). License ------- You may use and distribute these fonts as you like. You may modify these fonts as long as you do not rename the files to one of those names that Donald E. Knuth chose for the Computer Modern fonts. (And seriously, who would want to do that?) How to Install -------------- 1. If a previous version of this font is installed, remove all the files, especially the font files that were generated by Metafont after the first installation. 2. Depending on how you obtained this package it might be necessary to unpack/uncompress an archive. Now the files dsrom12.pfb dsss10.mf dsss8.tfm dsdoc.pdf dsrom12.tfm dsss10.pfb dstroke.map dsdoc.tex dsrom8.mf dsss10.tfm readme dsfont.sty dsrom8.pfb dsss12.mf Udsrom.fd dsrom10.mf dsrom8.tfm dsss12.pfb Udsss.fd dsrom10.pfb dsrom.mf dsss12.tfm dsrom10.tfm dsromo.mf dsss8.mf dsrom12.mf dsromu.mf dsss8.pfb should be present. 3. Make sure you have TeX, LaTeX (with NFSS), and Metafont installed. Make sure that cmbase.mf is accessible by Metafont. 4. Move the files to their destination. The files are and are needed by *.tfm TeX font metric files TeX *.fd font defintions TeX *.sty style files TeX *.mf Metafont sources Metafont The exact location where the files belong depends on your installation. As a first approximation, install them near other files with the same extension. 5. Verify the installation by generating the documentation. Run `latex dsdoc' and have a look at the file dsdoc.dvi which contains the documentation and usage samples. 6. If you want to use the PostScript fonts, you have to make them known to dvips and/or PDFTeX. The details of this process depend on your system installation, typically using the mapping information from the file dstroke.map and following further instructions contained in the main manual. 7. After reading the examples in the file dsdoc you can use the fonts in your own documents. After the Installation ---------------------- Do not worry, most installations complete without any problems. However, if the procedure described above does not work, I suggest the following actions: - If LaTeX complains about a missing input file, check whether the files *.fd and *.sty are accessible and readable. - If LaTeX complains about a missing font, check the placement of the files *.tfm . - If LaTeX issues strange errors, you might have an old version of LaTeX or NFSS. Try using the fonts with low-level font commands instead of dsfont.sty and check the next item, too. - If LaTeX issues strange errors, the files might have been corrupted during transmission. Conversions of CR, LF, and so on might cause this problem. - If the previewer or the printer driver complains about missing fonts and does not automatically call Metafont to generate these font, either adapt your installation or generate the fonts by hand. Depending on your installation you must run something like mf '\mode=localfont; input dsrom10' for each of the fonts. - If Metafont is called and complains about missing source files, check whether these (*.mf) are placed correctly. - If Metafont is called and complains about strange paths or about paths that do not intersect, you are probably generating the font at a lower resolution than 100 dpi. There is little you can do except ignoring the errors or telling Metafont to do so. Please report such errors only if they occur at resolutions above 100 dpi. - If the previewer or the printer driver complains about missing characters, check whether you have deleted all files from previous versions of this font. - If the previewer or the printer driver complains about a checksum error, check whether you have deleted all files from previous versions of this font. If that does not help and your friendly TeXnician is unavailable, drop me a mail. I will try to help you, if time permits. I am always glad to hear about improvements and bug reports, general comments are appreciated, too.

doublestroke – Typeset mathematical double stroke symbols
A font based on Computer Modern Roman useful for typesetting the mathematical symbols for the natural numbers (N), whole numbers (Z), rational numbers (Q), real numbers (R) and complex numbers (C); coverage includes all Roman capital letters, ‘1’, ‘h’ and ‘k’. The font is available both as METAFONT source and in Adobe Type 1 format, and LaTeX macros for its use are provided.
