NAME

       font2afm - create font metrics (in afm format) for (almost) any font file

SYNOPSIS

       font2afm [options] font ...

       font2afm [options] @filelist

DESCRIPTION

       font2afm generates font metrics (in Adobe's afm format) for Type1, TrueType and OpenType
       fonts.

       font2afm is just a wrapper script around several utilities (cfftot1, pf2afm, ttf2afm,
       pfm2kpx and ot2kpx) that do the real work.  All these utilities need to be available on
       your system.

OPTIONS

       -f  Force overwriting of existing afm files.

FILES

       font
           This can be any Type1 (in either pfa or pfb format), TrueType or OpenType (both
           PostScript- and TrueType-flavored) font.

       filelist
           This should contain a newline-separated list of font filenames.
