Direc­tory tex-archive/fonts/utilities/mf2ps

It has come to my attention that our assumption that the MFlib that we had
was the current standard is NOT true. The problem is that I am sitting here
in Pittsburgh and cannot get to the machine in Israel with the original
version. I will be back there in a week and a half (23 December) and will be
back to Pittsburgh, where I can easily rebuild this archive only by 1
February 1991. If someone has the correct mflib.a and would inform me where
I can snarf it from, I will attempt to build the mf2ps here and if that
works I will post it here.

I am sorry to cause this inconvenience; this is a problem living in a place
that does not quite get everything up to date and from which telnet and ftp
are expensive propositions.
******************************************************
Note that mf2ps is built out of mf84 for the sun. It uses suntools. So it
will not work directly on other machines. However, I suspect that by making
the changes we made to mf84 modules to those on another machine, you will
come up with an mf2ps for another machine.

This directory contains almost all the modules to make mf2ps. This
directory should be installed parallel to mf84 so that the includes will
work.

mf2ps – Mod­i­fi­ca­tion of to pro­duce PostScript out­put

The sys­tem de­scribes Pas­cal source mod­i­fi­ca­tions to (ver­sion 1.7 or ear­lier) for it to pro­duce fonts spec­i­fied in PostScript. The work was un­der­taken be­fore Adobe pub­lished the spec­i­fi­ca­tion of its Type 1 for­mat, so that the fonts thus pro­duced are bulky and rel­a­tively in­ef­fi­cient, in mod­ern terms.
