afm2afm - reencode an afm file
afm2afm [-help] [-encoding encodingfile] [-kpx kpxfile] [-output
afm2afm re-encodes an afm file.
Metrics (including kerning data) for characters not present in the
chosen encoding are excluded from the output, which resuls in
(potentially much) smaller files.
Additional kerning pairs can be added to the output file. If you don't
specify an encoding file, the afm file isn't re-encoded; however, all
unused (unencoded) data is still pruned.
The program also generates an entry for a dvips-style map file, but
only if the afm file has been re-encoded and the output was written to
file (i.e., if both the -encoding and -output options were specified).
OPTIONS AND ARGUMENTS
Print a short description of the syntax
Re-encode to the enconding in encodingfile
Read additional kerning pairs from kpxfile and add these to the
output. This option cannot be used to override values from the
input afm file, since afm2afm will write both old and new values to
The kpxfile should contain kerning data in standard afm format,
i.e. for each kerning pair there should be a line
KPX <left_glyph> <right_glyph> <amount>
All other lines in the kpxfile are ignored.
Write the result to outputfile instead of "stdout".
The afm file to be re-encoded.
You may use either one or two dashes before options, and option names
may be shortened to a unique prefix.
