CTAN submission – fontinst update

Date: May 26, 2002 10:44:28 AM CEST
----- Forwarded message from Walter Schmidt ----- I have uploaded the file fi-update.zip to the /incoming directory at dante.ctan.org. It includes up-to-date 8y.etx and 8r.etx files with Euro character, to go into the fontinst "pre-release" These .etx files match the corresponding encoding vectors texnansi.enc and 8r.enc now. (The latter was recently updated together with PSNFSS version 9.) Please, unzip fi-update.zip in the CTAN directory fonts/utilities/fontinst-prerelease. Doing so will overwrite the following files: inputs/etx/8r.etx inputs/etx/8y.etx manifest.tex manifest.txt thank you very much Walter Schmidt ----- End forwarded message ----- Thanks for the upload. I habe installed the new files in CTAN:/tex-archive/fonts/utilities/fontinst-prerelease as suggested. -- Reinhard Zierke for the CTAN team

fontinst – Help with installing fonts for and

macros for converting Adobe Font Metric files to metric and virtual font format. Fontinst helps mainly with the number crunching and shovelling parts of font installation. This means in practice that it creates a number of files which give the metrics (and related information) for a font family that needs to do any typesetting in these fonts. Fontinst furthermore makes it easy to create fonts containing glyphs from more than one base font, taking advantage of (e.g.) "expert" font sets.

Fontinst cannot examine files to see if they contain any useful information, nor automatically search for files or work with binary file formats; those tasks must normally be done manually or with the help of some other tool, such as the pltotf and vptovf programs.
