afmtodit - create font files for use with groff -Tps . .


afmtodit . afm_file map_file font
. .


afmtodit creates a font file for use with groff and R grops . . afmtodit is written in perl; you must have perl version 3 or newer installed in order to run R afmtodit . . afm_file is the AFM (Adobe Font Metric) file for the font. . map_file is a file that says which groff character names map onto each PostScript character name; this file should contain a sequence of lines of the form
ps_char groff_char
where ps_char is the PostScript name of the character and groff_char is the groff name of the character (as used in the groff font file). . The same ps_char can occur multiple times in the file; each groff_char must occur at most once. . Lines starting with # and blank lines are ignored. . font is the groff name of the font. . If a PostScript character is in the encoding to be used for the font but is not mentioned in map_file then afmtodit will put it in the groff font file as an unnamed character, which can be accessed by the \N escape sequence in R troff . . The groff font file will be output to a file called R font . .
If there is a downloadable font file for the font, it may be listed in the file R /usr/share/groff/1.18.1/font/devps/download ; see grops(1). .
If the -i option is used, afmtodit will automatically generate an italic correction, a left italic correction and a subscript correction for each character (the significance of these parameters is explained in groff_font(5)); these parameters may be specified for individual characters by adding to the afm_file lines of the form:
I italicCorrection  ps_char n
I leftItalicCorrection  ps_char n
I subscriptCorrection  ps_char n
where ps_char is the PostScript name of the character, and n is the desired value of the corresponding parameter in thousandths of an em. . These parameters are normally needed only for italic (or oblique) fonts. . .


Print version. .
Don't output a ligatures command for this font. . Use this with constant-width fonts. .
The font is special. . The effect of this option is to add the special command to the font file. .
I -d desc_file
The device description file is desc_file rather than the default R DESC . .
I -e enc_file
The PostScript font should be reencoded to use the encoding described in enc_file. . The format of enc_file is described in grops(1). .
I -a n
Use n as the slant parameter in the font file; this is used by groff in the positioning of accents. . By default afmtodit uses the negative of the ItalicAngle specified in the afm file; with true italic fonts it is sometimes desirable to use a slant that is less than this. . If you find that characters from an italic font have accents placed too far to the right over them, then use the -a option to give the font a smaller slant. .
I -i n
Generate an italic correction for each character so that the character's width plus the character's italic correction is equal to n thousandths of an em plus the amount by which the right edge of the character's bounding is to the right of the character's origin. . If this would result in a negative italic correction, use a zero italic correction instead. .
Also generate a subscript correction equal to the product of the tangent of the slant of the font and four fifths of the x-height of the font. . If this would result in a subscript correction greater than the italic correction, use a subscript correction equal to the italic correction instead. .
Also generate a left italic correction for each character equal to n thousandths of an em plus the amount by which the left edge of the character's bounding box is to the left of the character's origin. . The left italic correction may be negative. .
This option is normally needed only with italic (or oblique) fonts. . The font files distributed with groff were created using an option of -i50 for italic fonts. . .
