makefonts

Shell scripts to generate bitmaps from Metafont sources.

This package contains shell scripts which generate PK files, based on the long-established script allcm.

Modern TeX distributions use Adobe Type 1 fonts for preference (if they allow bitmap forms at all), and will generate such bitmap fonts as are needed on-the-fly. These scripts are therefore most useful to those who have a principled objection to the use of outline fonts (or to the design of those available).
