./fonts/tex-metafont, METAFONT system for specifying fonts

[ CVSweb ] [ Homepage ] [ RSS ] [ Required by ] [ Add to tracker ]


Branch: CURRENT, Version: 2020nb1, Package name: tex-metafont-2020nb1, Maintainer: minskim

The program takes a semi-algorithmic specification of a font,
and produces a bitmap font (whose properties are defined by a
set of parameters of the target device), and a set metrics for
use by TeX. The bitmap output may be converted into a format
directly usable by a device driver, etc., by the tools provided
in the parallel mfware distribution. (Third parties have
developed tools to convert the bitmap output to outline fonts.)
The distribution includes the source of Knuth's Metafont book;
this source is there to read, as an example of writing TeX --
it should not be processed without Knuth's direct permission.

Log message:
all: migrate several HOMEPAGEs to https

pkglint --only "https instead of http" -r -F

With manual adjustments afterwards since pkglint 19.4.4 fixed a few
indentations in unrelated lines.

This mainly affects projects hosted at SourceForce, as well as
freedesktop.org, CTAN and GNU.
