It worked for our matrix printer at that time (180 dpi?) However, I never succeeded in really having it produce 300 dpi or whatever. Maybe someone wants to give it a try? MJP>> Seems OK at 300dpi It was said at that time that the output resembles my own hand writing. Of course, I shaped the letters after my writing, but apart from giving it reference points, I let Metafont do the big work of doing the roundings. All letters `match' each other in that they end where the next one begins. (There are some minor exceptions to this, but that also applies to my own handwriting.) The relevant files are: script.mf -- contains all the essential METAFONT code (460 lines) script10.mf -- for producing the 10pt font (4 lines) scriptb10.mf -- for producing the bold 10pt font (4 lines) -- Peter Vanroose Electrotechnical Department, ESAT K.U.
