NAME
       afm2tfm - convert Adobe font metrics to TeX font	metrics

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

SEE ALSO
       dvips(1), tex(1), vptovf(1)

BUGS
       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.

AUTHORS
       Tomas Rokicki <rokicki@cs.stanford.edu> and Donald E. Knuth
