NAME
font2afm - create font metrics (in afm format) for (almost) any font
file

SYNOPSIS
font2afm [options] font ...

font2afm [options] @filelist

DESCRIPTION
font2afm generates font metrics (in Adobe's afm format) for Type1,
TrueType and OpenType fonts.

font2afm is just a wrapper script around several utilities (cfftot1,
pf2afm, ttf2afm, pfm2kpx and ot2kpx) that do the real work. All these
utilities need to be available on your system.

OPTIONS
-f Force overwriting of existing afm files.

FILES
font
This can be any Type1 (in either pfa or pfb format), TrueType or
OpenType (both PostScript- and TrueType-flavored) font.

filelist
This should contain a newline-separated list of font filenames.

SEE ALSO
pf2afm (part of GhostScript), ttf2afm (part of pdfTeX), afm2afm,
autoinst, cmap2enc, ot2kpx, pfm2kpx, cfftot1 (part of Eddie Kohler's
LCDF TypeTools).
