           hpftodit [ -sv ] [ -in ] tfm_file map_file font
           It  is  possible  to have whitespace between the -i command line option
           and its parameter.


           hpftodit creates a font file for use with groff -Tlj4 from an HP tagged
           font  metric file.  tfm_file is the name of the tagged font metric file
           for the font.  map_file is a file giving the groff names for characters
           in  the  font;  this  file should consist of a sequence of lines of the
                  n c1 c2 ...
           where n is a decimal integer giving the MSL number  of  the  character,
           and c1, c2,...  are the groff names of the character.  font is the name
           of the groff font file.  The groff font file is written to font.
           The -s option should be given if the font is special (a font is special
           if troff should search it whenever a character is not found in the cur-
           rent font.)  If the font is special, it should be listed in  the  fonts
           command  in  the  DESC  file; if it is not special, there is no need to
           list it, since troff can automatically mount it when it's first used.
           If the -i option is  used,  hpftodit  will  automatically  generate  an
           italic  correction, a left italic correction and a subscript correction
           for each character (the significance of these parameters  is  explained
           in groff_font(5)).


           -v     Print the version number.
           -s     The  font  is  special.  The effect of this option is to add the
                  special command to the font file.
           -in    Generate an italic correction for each  character  so  that  the
                  character's  width  plus  the  character's  italic correction is
                  equal to n design units plus the amount by which the right  edge
                  of  the  character's bounding is to the right of the character's
                  origin.  If this would result in a negative  italic  correction,
                  use  a  zero  italic  correction instead.  There are 8782 design
                  units per em for Intellifont fonts.
                  Also generate a subscript correction equal to the product of the
                  tangent of the slant of the font and four fifths of the x-height
                  of the font.  If this would result  in  a  subscript  correction
                  greater  than  the italic correction, use a subscript correction
                  equal to the italic correction instead.
                  Also generate a left italic correction for each character  equal
                  to  n design units plus the amount by which the left edge of the
           This program was written without the benefit of complete, official doc-
           umentation  on  the  tagged font metric format.  It is therefore likely
           that it will fail to work on tfm files that are dissimilar to those for
           the internal fonts on the Laserjet 4, with which it was tested:
           TrueType tfm files are not supported.
