NAME
       type1inst  - Type 1 PostScript font installation	utility	for the	X Win-
       dow System and Ghostscript

VERSION
       0.6.1 (February 11 1998)

SYNOPSIS
       type1inst [-nox]	[-nogs]	[-samples] [-nolog]  [-q]  [-quiet]  [-silent]
       [-version] [-v]

DESCRIPTION
       type1inst  is  a	 utility  which	scans Type 1 PostScript	font files and
       generates automatically the fonts.scale file which the X	Window	System
       uses  to	pick up	fonts in the current directory and/or the Fontmap file
       which Ghostscript uses to map file names	to font	names.	 It  can  also
       generate	 simple	 font  sample  sheets  which show what your fonts look
       like.

       type1inst is a Perl script so you will need to have that	 installed  on
       your system.  The pfbtops utility (which	comes as part of GNU groff) is
       also required.

ADOBE DPS USERS	NOTE
       If you are using	a commercial Unix system which	has  a	Display	 Post-
       Script-capable X	server (for example Sun	Solaris	2.3 or later) then you
       should not use type1inst	for generating	a  fonts.scale	file  (indeed,
       such systems do not even	use fonts.scale).  The makepsres utility which
       came with your system does what you want.  You can, however, still  use
       this program with Ghostscript if	you wish.

USAGE
       Change directory	to the directory where the fonts you wish to have pro-
       cessed  are  located.   Invoking	 type1inst  will   then	  generate   a
       fonts.scale and a Fontmap.  The program also has	a number of options as
       detailed	below.

OPTIONS
       -nox    Supresses generation/update of the file fonts.scale which lists
	       the  fonts  in  the  current directory for the benefit of the X
	       Window System.  This file is generated or updated by default.

       -nogs   Supresses generation/update of the file Fontmap which lists the
	       fonts  in the current directory for the benefit of Ghostscript.
	       This file is generated or updated by default.

       -samples
	       Creates PostScript files	showing	the fonts in the  current  di-
	       rectory.	 One file is created for each font in the subdirectory
	       samples as well as one or more  files  showing  the  fonts  to-
	       gether.

       -nolog  Supresses  the generation of a log file detailing what happened
	       during the last run of type1inst.  This file  is	 generated  by
	       default.

       -quiet  Stops  type1inst	 from  printing	 messages on stdout.  Messages
	       will be written to the log file,	unless -nolog is  also	speci-
	       fied,  in  which	 case  the  program does its work but does not
	       record anywhere what happened.

       -q      Same as -quiet.

       -silent This has	the same effect	as -quiet.

       -version
	       Print version information and exit.

       -v      Same as -version.

NOTES
       More detailed information is available in the README file which is part
       of the type1inst	distribution.
