    SYNOPSIS

           tfmtodit [ -sv ] [ -ggf_file ] [ -kskewchar ] tfm_file map_file font
    
           It is possible to have whitespace between a command line option and its
           parameter.
    
    
    

    DESCRIPTION

           tfmtodit creates a font file for use with groff -Tdvi.  tfm_file is the
           name of the TeX font metric file for the font.  map_file is a file giv-
           ing the groff names for characters in the font; this file  should  con-
           sist of a sequence of lines of the form:
    
                  n c1 c2 ...
    
           where  n  is  a decimal integer giving the position of the character in
           the font, and c1, c2,...  are the groff names of the character.   If  a
           character  has  no groff names but exists in the tfm file, then it will
           be put in the groff font file as an unnamed  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.
    
           To do a good job of math typesetting, groff requires font metric infor-
           mation not present in the tfm file.  The reason for this  is  that  TeX
           has  separate  math italic fonts whereas groff uses normal italic fonts
           for math.  The additional information required by groff is given by the
           two  arguments  to  the math_fit macro in the Metafont programs for the
           Computer Modern fonts.  In a text font (a font for  which  math_fitting
           is false), Metafont normally ignores these two arguments.  Metafont can
           be made to put this information in the gf file by loading the following
           definition after cmbase when creating cm.base:
    
                  def ignore_math_fit(expr left_adjustment,right_adjustment) =
                      special "adjustment";
                      numspecial left_adjustment*16/designsize;
                      numspecial right_adjustment*16/designsize;
                      enddef;
    
           For  the EC font family, load the following definition after exbase (it
           is probably easiest to patch exbase.mf locally):
    
                  def ignore_math_fit(expr left_adjustment,right_adjustment) =
                      ori_special "adjustment";
                      ori_numspecial left_adjustment*16/designsize;
                      ori_numspecial right_adjustment*16/designsize;
                      enddef;
    
           The gf file created using this modified cm.base  or  exbase  should  be
    
           -ggf_file
                  gf_file is a gf file produced by Metafont containing special and
                  numspecial commands giving additional font metric information.
