composeglyphs(1)                    Debian                    composeglyphs(1)



NAME
       composeglyphs - generate an encoding vector or new font for postscript

SYNOPSIS
       composeglyphs -e encoding.afm -E encoding.ps

       composeglyphs  -i input.afm -o output.ps -c composite.afm -n newname -e
       base_encoding.afm -t target_encoding.afm -a output.afm

DESCRIPTION
       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.

              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  informa-
              tion.

       -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.

       you kindly send him a copy so that he may include them in the distribu-
