no example yet ...

... Feel free to add your own example above to help other Linux-lovers !


fontinst runs tex(1) with the --progname flag set to pretend to be the program fontinst (affecting Karl Berry paths).


fontinst fontinst.sty

will start tex(1) and give the user an interactive prompt (*) where fontinst commands can be typed (such as \latinfamily{ptm}{}\bye).


None known, but report any bugs found to tex-fonts[:at:]tug[:dot:]org (mailing list).
