afm2tfm - convert Adobe font metrics to TeX font metrics
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 similar information. This program does that conversion.
For all the details, see the dvips manual (http://tug.org/dvips).
psfonts.map in the config directory used by dvips.

Knuth because it would make the fi and fl ligatures break the normal
Tomas Rokicki and Donald E. Knuth.
