NAME
       psfonts,	 psdownload  -	add necessary fonts to PostScript document for
       printing

SYNOPSIS
       psfonts [ files ...  ]

       psdownload [ options ] [	files ...  ]

DESCRIPTION
       Plan 9's	troff(1) and  tr2post(1)  use  non-standard  PostScript	 fonts
       (found in /usr/local/plan9/postscript/font).  Before sending PostScript
       output from tr2post to a	standard printer, code implementing  the  non-
       standard	fonts must be added to the PostScript.

       Psfonts	copies	files  (or  standard input) to standard	output,	adding
       necessary PostScript fonts.

       Psdownload is the more general program used to implement	psfonts.   The
       options are:

       -c comment
	      Expect  the fonts	used in	the document to	be listed in a comment
	      beginning	with this string (default %%DocumentFonts:).

       -f atend
	      Expect extra fonts comments at the end of	the document, so  read
	      the  entire  input  before starting output (by default this only
	      happens if a %%DocumentFonts: (atend) comment is encountered).

       -m mapfile
	      Use mapfile to translate from PostScript font  names  to	files.
	      Each  line  in  the  map has two white space-separated fields: a
	      font name	and the	corresponding  file.   If  mapfile  is	not  a
	      rooted path, it is evaluated relative to the fontdir (see	-H be-
	      low).

       -p printer
	      Set the name of the printer.  This option	 is  deprecated.   Its
	      only effect is to	override the -r	option,	causing	fontdir/print-
	      ers/printer to be	used as	the resident fonts list.

       -r residentfonts
	      Read a list of fonts assumed to be on the	printer	(not necessary
	      to  re-download)	from the file residentfonts.  If residentfonts
	      is not a rooted path, it is evaluated relative  to  the  fontdir
	      (see -H below).

       -H fontdir
	      Set  the	directory  that	 is  assumed to	contain	the PostScript
	      fonts and	information about printers (see	-m, -p,	and -r	above;
	      default /usr/local/plan9/postscript/font).

       -T tmpdir
	      Use tmpdir for storing temporary files (default /var/tmp).

       -D     Produce copious amounts of debugging information on standard er-
	      ror.

       -I     Continue running even after fatal	errors occur.

EXAMPLE
       See tr2post(1) for an example.
