allcm forces a large number of Computer Modern Fonts to be calculated as pixel files. This is done through running dvips(1) over a certain test-file. Therefore, the fonts are created in the resolution needed by dvips.
If the -r flag is specified, the command dvired(1) will be used instead of dvips.
allcm does not recalculate existing fonts (as long as the Metafont mode does not change).
allec(1), allneeded(1), dvips(1), dvired(1).
