 62.SH DESCRIPTION
 63.B afmtodit
 64creates a font file for use with groff and
 65.BR grops .
 66.
 67.B afmtodit
 68is written in perl;
 69you must have perl version 5.004 or newer installed in order to run
 70.BR afmtodit .
 71.
 72.LP
 73.I afm_file
 74is the AFM (Adobe Font Metric) file for the font.
 75.
 76.LP
 77.I map_file
 78is a file that says which groff character names map onto
 79each PostScript character name;
 80this file should contain a sequence of lines of the form
 81.IP
 82.I
 83ps_char groff_char
 84.LP
 85where
 86.I ps_char
 87is the PostScript name of the character
 88and
 89.I groff_char
 90is the groff name of the character (as used in the groff font file).
 91.
 92The same
 93.I ps_char
 94can occur multiple times in the file;
 95each
 96.I groff_char
 97must occur at most once.
 98.
 99Lines starting with
100.B #
101and blank lines are ignored.
102.
103If the file isn't found in the current directory, it is searched in
104the `devps/generate' subdirectory of the default font directory.
105.
106.LP
107If a PostScript character is not named as
108.BI uni XXXX
109.RI ( XXXX
110are four uppercase hexadecimal digits), and is not mentioned in
111.IR map_file ,
112and a generic groff glyph name can't be deduced using the
113Adobe Glyph List (AGL, built into
114.BR  afmtodit ),
115then
116.B afmtodit
117puts the PostScript character into the groff font file as an unnamed
118character which can only be accessed by the
119.B \eN
120escape sequence in
121.BR troff .
122.
123If option
124.B \-e
125is not specified, the encoding defined in the AFM file (i.e., entries
126with non-negative character codes) is used.
127.
128Please refer to section `Using Symbols' in the groff info file which
129describes how groff glyph names are constructed.
130.
131.LP
132Characters not encoded in the AFM file (i.e., entries which have \-1 as
133the character code) are still available in groff; they get glyph index
134values greater than 255 (or greater than the biggest character code used
135in the AFM file in the unlikely case that it is greater than 255) in the
136groff font file.
137.
138Glyph indices of unencoded characters don't have a specific order; it
139is best to access them with glyph names only.
140.
141.LP
142The groff font file will be output to a file called
143.IR font .
144.
145.LP
146If there is a downloadable font file for the font, it may be listed in
147the file
148.BR @FONTDIR@/devps/download ;
149see
150.BR grops (@MAN1EXT@).
151.
152.LP
153If the
154.B \-i
155option is used,
156.B afmtodit
157will automatically generate an italic correction,
158a left italic correction and a subscript correction
159for each character
160(the significance of these parameters is explained in
161.BR groff_font (@MAN5EXT@));
162these parameters may be specified for individual characters by
163adding to the
164.I afm_file
165lines of the form:
166.IP
167.BI italicCorrection\  ps_char\ n
168.br
169.BI leftItalicCorrection\  ps_char\ n
170.br
171.BI subscriptCorrection\  ps_char\ n
172.LP
173where
174.I ps_char
175is the PostScript name of the character,
176and
177.I n
178is the desired value of the corresponding parameter in thousandths of an em.
179.
180These parameters are normally needed only for italic (or oblique) fonts.
181.
182.
183.SH OPTIONS
184.TP
185.BI \-a n
186Use
187.I n
188as the slant parameter in the font file;
189this is used by groff in the positioning of accents.
190.
191By default
192.B afmtodit
193uses the negative of the ItalicAngle specified in the afm file;
194with true italic fonts it is sometimes desirable to use
195a slant that is less than this.
196.
197If you find that characters from an italic font have accents
198placed too far to the right over them,
199then use the
200.B \-a
201option to give the font a smaller slant.
202.
203.TP
204.BI \-d desc_file
205The device description file is
206.I desc_file
207rather than the default
208.BR DESC .
209.
210If not found in the current directory, the `devps' subdirectory of the
211default font directory is searched (this is true for both the default
212device description file and a file given with option
213.BR \-d ).
214.
215.TP
216.BI \-e enc_file
217The PostScript font should be reencoded to use the encoding described
218in enc_file.
219.
220The format of
221.I enc_file
222is described in
223.BR grops (@MAN1EXT@).
224.
225If not found in the current directory, the `devps' subdirectory of the
226default font directory is searched.
227.
228.TP
229.BI \-i n
230Generate an italic correction for each character so that 
231the character's width plus the character's italic correction
232is equal to
233.I n
234thousandths of an em
235plus the amount by which the right edge of the character's bounding box
236is to the right of the character's origin.
237.
238If this would result in a negative italic correction, use a zero
239italic correction instead.
240.
241.IP
242Also generate a subscript correction equal to the 
243product of the tangent of the slant of the font and
244four fifths of the x-height of the font.
245.
246If this would result in a subscript correction greater than the italic
247correction, use a subscript correction equal to the italic correction
248instead.
249.
250.IP
251Also generate a left italic correction for each character
252equal to
253.I n
254thousandths of an em
255plus the amount by which the left edge of the character's bounding box
256is to the left of the character's origin.
257.
258The left italic correction may be negative unless option
259.B \-m
260is given.
261.
262.IP
263This option is normally needed only with italic (or oblique) fonts.
264.
265The font files distributed with groff were created using an option of
266.B \-i50
267for italic fonts.
268.
269.TP
270.B \-m
271Prevent negative left italic correction values.
272.
273Roman font files distributed with groff were created with
274.B \-i0\ \-m
275to improve spacing with
276.BR @g@eqn (@MAN1EXT@).
277.
278.TP
279.B \-n
280Don't output a
281.B ligatures
282command for this font.
283.
284Use this with constant-width fonts.
285.
286.TP
287.B \-s
288The font is special.
289.
290The effect of this option is to add the
291.B special
292command to the font file.
293.
294.TP
295.B \-v
296Print version.
297.
298.TP
299.B \-x
300Don't use the built-in Adobe Glyph List.
