       afm2tfm - convert Adobe font metrics to TeX font metrics

       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 in the config directory used by dvips (update this).
       ../afm/Makefile in the dvips sources (look at this for examples).

       dvips(1), tex(1), vptovf(1)

       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.

       Tomas Rokicki <> and Donald E. Knuth
