afm2afm - reencode an afm file
- [-help] [ -encoding encodingfile] [
-kpx kpxfile] [ -output outputfile]
re-encodes an afm
Metrics (including kerning data) for characters not present in the chosen
encoding are excluded from the output, which resuls in (potentially much)
Additional kerning pairs can be added to the output file. If you don't specify
an encoding file, the afm
file isn't re-encoded; however, all unused
(unencoded) data is still pruned.
The program also generates an entry for a dvips
-style map file, but only
if the afm
file has been re-encoded and the output was written to file
(i.e., if both the -encoding
- Print a short description of the syntax
- -encoding encodingfile
- Re-encode to the enconding in encodingfile
- -kpx kpxfile
- Read additional kerning pairs from kpxfile and add
these to the output. This option cannot be used to override values from
the input afm file, since afm2afm will write both old and
new values to the output!
The kpxfile should contain kerning data in standard afm
format, i.e. for each kerning pair there should be a line
KPX <left_glyph> <right_glyph> <amount>
All other lines in the kpxfile are ignored.
- -output outputfile
- Write the result to outputfile instead of
- The afm file to be re-encoded.
You may use either one or two dashes before options, and option names may be
shortened to a unique prefix.

- Added the -kpx command-line option. Replaced all
"given/when" constructions in the source code by
"if"'s, to avoid warnings about experimental features in Perl
5.18 and later.
- Refactored the code; added the "no re-encoding, only
