Bug#130512: ITP: vftool -- tool to generate VF files for dvi2ps/dvi2dvi
To use japanese PostScript fonts and/or TrueType fonts etc.
in TeX files, we need VF fonts and vftool is a tool to generate
these VF fonts.
As a similar tool, there is makejvf (which I maintain too)
and the differences between vftool and makejvf are;
- vftool is much versatile than makejvf but
- vftool is much difficult to use than makejvf
* Description: a tool to generate VF files for dvi2ps/dvi2dvi
