texlive-fontinst 49435 Tools for converting and installing fonts for TeX and LaTeX

This package provides TeX macros for converting Adobe Font Metric files to TeX metric and virtual font format. Fontinst helps mainly with the number crunching and shovelling parts of font installation. This means in practice that it creates a number of files which give the TeX metrics (and related information) for a font family that TeX needs to do any typesetting in these fonts.
