13.1 > Graphics > mftrace (1.2.16)

Mftrace is a small Python program that lets you trace a TeX bitmap font into a
PFA or PFB font (A PostScript Type1 Scalable Font). Type1 fonts offer many
advantages over bitmaps, as they allow PostScript files to render correctly on
printers with many resolutions. Moreover, Ghostscript can generate much
better PDF, if given scalable fonts.

This requires potrace and t1utils, and fontforge is optional but recommended.
