Converts Metafont fonts into Type1 fonts

mftrace is a small Python program that lets you trace a TeX bitmap font (a METAFONT font) into a PFA or PFB font (A PostScript Type1 Scalable Font).

Type1 fonts offer many advantages over bitmaps, as they allow PostScript files to render correctly on printers with many resolutions. Moreover, Ghostscript can generate much better PDF, if given scalable fonts.

Tags: Implemented in: Python, User Interface: Command Line, Role: role::program, use::converting, Works with: Fonts
