This is a little hack I wrote to help in setting up new Type 1 PostScript
fonts for use with X. It automatically constructs the fonts.scale file which
X uses to identify fonts in can use the current directory. Previously you
had to write this file by hand which is unacceptable if you have lots of
The program can also generate Fontmap entries for Ghostscript (which can
then be put in the global Fontmap to speed up startup times) and it can
produce font sample sheets as well.
Please be warned that this is beta quality software and has limitations. I
think you will, however, find it useful and the bugs will go away over time
if people help me with it.
