UTILITIES FOR TEX AND
Set of tools for a better display of
characters in Metafont
mfutils.mf is a set of utilities designed
to facilitate displaying and viewing of characters
in a font created with Metafont. It is written in
the Metafont language. This comes in very handy if
you are in the process designing a new series of
characters or symbols with Metafont. Usually, when
you process a font with Metafont, all the
characters are displayed very rapidly one after the
With mfutils, you can
- stop between each character
- view several characters simultaneously on
the screen (upto sixteen characters, starting
from any one).
- display directly any character in a font
- display the characters by series of four,
eight, twelve or sixteen
- display them with a grid or with a frame.
You can choose the number of lines in the grid.
All these features work in any mode (not only
proof or smoke). Just copy the
mfutils.mf file in a repertory searched by
Metafont. To use it say "input mfutils" in the
preambule of your source file.
Instructions come in the file mfutils.doc.
