NAME afm2tfm - convert Adobe font metrics to TeX font metrics
DESCRIPTION PostScript fonts are (or should be) accompanied by font metric files such as Times- Roman.afm, which describes the characteristics of the font called Times-Roman. To use such fonts with TeX, we need TFM files that contain similar information. This program does that conversion. For more information, print out the dvips manual.
FILES psfonts.map in the config directory used by dvips (update this). ../afm/Makefile in the dvips sources (look at this for examples).
SEE ALSO dvips(1), tex(1), vptovf(1)
BUGS An option to add letterspacing to the virtual font was rejected by Knuth because it would make the fi and fl ligatures break the normal rhythmic pattern.
