       texfont - font installation tool for ConTeXt


       texfont [ OPTION ...  ]


       TeXFont  is  a perl(1) script that helps to set up and install TeX fonts.  It was designed
       for use with ConTeXt, but may also be helpful for users of other formats, like  plain  TeX
       or LaTeX. Its use is described in detail in the files mtexfont.pdf and mfont.pdf.
