A converter for PostScript(TM) font metric files, for use with TeX.

Tetex-afm provides afm2tfm, a converter for PostScript font metric files. PostScript fonts are accompanied by .afm font metric files which describe the characteristics of each font. To use PostScript fonts with TeX, TeX needs .tfm files that contain similar information. Afm2tfm will convert .afm files to .tfm files.

If you are installing tetex in order to use the TeX text formatting system and PostScript(TM) files, you will need to install tetex-afm. You will also need to install tetex-dvips (for converting .dvi files to PostScript format for printing on PostScript printers), tetex-latex (a higher level formatting package which provides an easier-to-use interface for TeX), and tetex-xdvi (for previewing .dvi files in X). Unless you are an expert at using TeX, you should also install the tetex-doc package, which includes documentation for TeX.

Package version:3.0
