composeglyphs is a script to generate either an encoding vector or a new font for
postscript. It requires a pre-existing AFM and allows for the use of composite characters
that that AFM does not already provide.


-e encoding.afm
The base encoding AFM to use.

-E encoding.ps
The encoding vector to output.

-i input.afm
The AFM of the original font.

-o output.ps
The font program to generate.

-c composite.afm
The AFM containing supplementary composite character information.

-n newname
The name of the new font.

-t target_encoding.afm
The target encoding.

-a output.afm
The name of the AFM file to generate.


composeglyphs is a part of Ogonkify, which comes with the a2ps distribution.

If you create new AFMs or modify existing ones, the author asks that you kindly send him a
copy so that he may include them in the distribution.
