Package texlive-metafont

A system for specifying fonts


The program takes a programmatic specification of a font, and
produces a bitmap font (whose properties are defined by a set
of parameters of the target device), and metrics for use by
TeX. The bitmap output may be converted into a format directly
usable by a device driver, etc., by the tools provided in the
parallel mfware distribution. Third parties have developed
tools to convert the bitmap output to outline fonts. The
distribution includes the source of Knuth's Metafont book; this
source is there to read, as an example of writing TeX -- it
should not be processed without Knuth's direct permission. The
mailing list tex-fonts@math.utah.edu is the best for general
discussion of Metafont usage; the tex-k@tug.org list is best
for bug reports about building the software, etc.
