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  simi-
       lar  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 lig-
       atures break the normal rhythmic pattern.
