texlive-afm - A converter for PostScript(TM) font metric files, for use with TeX

License: GPLv2 and BSD and Public Domain and LGPLv2+ and GPLv2+ and LPPL
Vendor: Scientific Linux CERN,
texlive-afm provides afm2tfm, a converter for PostScript(TM) font metric
files. PostScript fonts are accompanied by .afm font metric files
which describe the characteristics of each font. To use PostScript
fonts with TeX, TeX needs .tfm files that contain similar information.
Afm2tfm will convert .afm files to .tfm files.

If you are installing texlive in order to use the TeX text formatting
system and PostScript files, you will need to install texlive-afm. You will
also need to install texlive-dvips (for converting .dvi files to PostScript
format for printing on PostScript printers), texlive-latex (a higher level
formatting package which provides an easier-to-use interface for TeX), and
xdvi (for previewing .dvi files in X).

The TeX documentation is located in the texlive-doc package.
