afm2afm - reencode an afm file


afm2afm [-help] [-encoding encodingfile] [-kpx kpxfile] [-output outputfile] afmfile


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).


Print a short description of the syntax

-encoding encodingfile
Re-encode to the enconding in encodingfile

-kpx kpxfile
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 output!

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.

-output outputfile
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.
