   Mattes' version of gcc/EMX) and popular UNIX platforms available in:

The ps2pk 1.5 package consists of the following parts. Each part can be
installed separately from its main directory via the help given in the

  1) ps2pk

     Description:  ps2pk converts a valid PostScript type1 font into
		   a TeX PK font.

     Directories:  ./ps2pk (main directory)
		   ./type1 (type1 rendering library)
		   ./common (common library)
		   ./PSres (PS resource lookup library)
		   ./PSources (resource examples)

  2) mkpsres

     Description:  mkpsres is an enhanced version of Adobe's makepsres
		   used to create resource databases. These consist of
		   a list of available resource types and per type a
		   list of the internal PostScript name with the name of
		   the file containing it.  Ps2pk uses this database to
		   locate fonts, AFM files and encoding vectors by
		   their PostScript name in a non-recursive way. For
		   compatibility with earlier versions ps2pk accepts
		   filenames as well.

     Directories:  ./PSres (main directory)
		   ./PSources (resource examples)

  3) programs for automatic font generation

     Description:  mtpk is C program that generates PK fonts from META-
		   FONT descriptions using mf or from PostScript type1
		   fonts with ps2pk (and/or from GhostScript fonts with
		   gsftopk if you wish so).
		   Pkfonts is a front-end of mtpk that generates missing
		   PK fonts from a DVI file.

     Directories:  ./mtpk (main directory)
		   ./common (common library)
