BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE CONTENTS

MFTOEPS: a METAFONT package for generating (encapsulated PostScript) files
         readable by CorelDRAW!(R), Adobe Illustrator(TM) and Fontographer(R).
         METAFONT writes PostScript code to a LOG-file, and from the LOG-file
         the code can be extracted by either TeX or AWK. DOS batch files,
         TeX source, and AWK source are placed in the subdirectory PROGS.

EPSTOMF: a tiny AWK script for converting EPS files into MF lingo.
         EPS files should conform the conventions of the MFTOEPS package.
         Such files are generated, e.g., by a Ghostscript utility which
         can be found in a directory: support/ps_conv/ on every CTAN
         or ftp.GUST.org.pl/pub/TeX/support/ps_conv/.

ROEX:    a set of METAFONT macros for accomplishing operations known
         as `removing overlaps' and `expanding stroke.' It can work
         with ``normal'' METAFONT programs, but is meant mainly for
         using with MFTOEPS; in this context it seems most natural.

PROGS:   a directory containing DOS batch files, AWK and TeX programs
         used by the packages listed above.

A sup­port pack­age in­clud­ing:

  • ep­stomf, a tiny AWK script for con­vert­ing EPS files into ;
  • mftoeps for gen­er­at­ing (en­cap­su­lated) PostScript files read­able, e.g., by CorelDRAW, Adobe Il­lus­tra­tor and Fon­tog­ra­pher;
  • a col­lec­tion of rou­tines (in folder progs) for con­vert­ing -coded graph­ics into en­cap­su­lated PostScript; and
  • roex.mf, which pro­vides macros for re­mov­ing over­laps and ex­pand­ing strokes.

In mftoeps, writes PostScript code to a log-file, from which it may be ex­tracted by ei­ther TeX or AWK.
