But sites are free to put the ps2pk15 stuff on any server that can. I have made read-to-go 1.5 executables for MSDOS (with Eberhard Mattes' version of gcc/EMX) and popular UNIX platforms available in: pub/tex/ps2pk15x 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 INSTALL file. 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) --Piet Februari 1996
