Ghostscript 8,64 installation on Windows -- missing "Fonts" and "Resources"?
I installed the Windows version of Ghostscript 8.64 using the
installer (from http://mirror.cs.wisc.edu/pub/mirrors/ghost/GPL/current/)
which was the only one I was able to find.
However, I guess there is a bug in this installer in that it does not
install any "Fonts" nor any "Resources" directory and also no
"Fontmap" file. These items I do expect being present because the
documentation ("Fonts.htm") does talk about these being distributed
Did this change recently? Am I expected to install the fonts from
other sources? Like, using the "urwfonts-1.41.tar.bz" package that I
found somewhere else?
The www.ghostscript.com website did not have any obvious link (at
least not one which I found) to a fonts download location.
I have seen an older Ghostscript (8.54) on a colleague's notebook,
where there are non-empty Fonts and Resources directories within the
Ghostscript install location. Could I possibly copy those over and use
with Ghostscript 8.64?

My understanding is that with 8.63, the fonts and resources are now
included in a dll. For most...[fonts] Installing "local" fonts (lm)
I recently tried to install fonts locally.
I've got a local directory (let's say /mydir/latex) which contains a
texmf directory. This dir (/mydir/latex) is exported to appear in
$TEXINPUTS and i can successfully use packages installed in
/mydir/latex/texmf/latex for example.
As I was trying to install fonts (lm - latin modern -
http://www.ctan.org/tex-archive/fonts/lm/) I ended up with an issue
(cannot use the fonts). Sadly,
http://www.tex.ac.uk/cgi-bin/texfaq2html?label=uselmfonts did not help,
or i missed something trivial...
Here is how I actually did this :
1/ extract the zip file as advised by the documentation (fonts dir in
texmf/fonts, docs in texmf/doc, tex in texmf/latex)
2/ make updmap find the lm.map and use it : updmap --enable Map
3/ update the list of packages/fonts in texmf : mktexlsr /mydir/latex/texmf)
4/ try to use it in tex files...
Here it goes...
kpathsea: Running mktextfm ec-lmss9
mktextfm: Running mf-nowin -progname=mf \mode:=ljfour; mag:=1;
nonstopmode; input ec-lmss9
This is METAFONT, Version 2.71828 (Web2C 7.5.6)

! I can't find file `ec-lmss9'.
<*> ...ljfour; mag:=1; nonstopmode; input ec-lmss9
(and the same goes for all lm classes :s)
So my guess is that kpathsea does not find the directory /mydir/latex
(that's why i tried to put the full path to lm.map with updmap), is
there an easyway to tell kpathsea to add /mydir/latex ...Font installation problems "Font shape undefined"

Yes, there is: <http://www.myfonts.com/fonts/apple/capitals/>
'Capitals' is one of the fonts that could be chosen as the system font
in OS 8 and OS 9. It is also distributed with the "classic environment"

Here's an example of something that is trivial to do in Apple's Font Book and
I'm curious as to how easily the same thing is accomplished in one of the
"professional" font managers such as Font Explorer or Suitcase Fusion.
When Adobe's Creative Suite 2 is installed a folder is created in
Library/Application Support/Fonts that contains some 180 .otf files each of
which contains a single face within a font family. Thus a given font family
can be represented by one or more .otf files.
What is helpful (at least to me) is to place all of the .otf files for a
given ..."out" and "in out"
Hi i found the following explaination:
In Ada, "in" parameters are similar to C++ const parameters. They are
effectively read-only within the scope of the called subprogram.
Ada "in out" parameters have a reliable initial value (that passed
in from the calling subprogram) and may be modified within the scope
of the called procedure. Ada "out" parameters have no reliable
initial value, but are expected to be assigned a value within the
What does "have no reliable initial value" mean when considering the "out"
By chance I created a small program as follows:
s : string := "CAT";
procedure modify ( s1 : out string ) is
s1(2) := 'U';
put ( modify(s) );
now I get as a result "CUT", and i dont understand why i get this result.
Doesnt the "out" specify that its initial value isnt passed in via the
parameter? But it seems to be passed in the above. In fact the "out" is
acting like an "in out". I am a little confused. Could someone shed some
light on this?

For the same reason why inner-classes/modules use double colon, because =
they're constants and that's how you look up via constant namespace.

i would guess (in the absence of any information) that you're using
the standard fontinst commands, from someone-or-other's instructions.

It is also true that I first tried to install them like latin fonts,

It can only be used for TCP services. Ping uses ICMP, not TCP.

- "is" has higher precedence than "not"
- "is not" is an operator in its own right.
So the evaluation is

...EPS for AGU journal: "outline" fonts or embed supported fonts?
I am still struggling to get AGU to properly use my EPS figures (in
which text is replaced using psfrag) in the form I intend. My
remaining problem is that it appears the CM fonts are embedded in some
of the figures and that these are not supported by AGU. I say some
because not all figures share this problem.
The solution proposed by AGU is as follows:
"All of the resubmitted figures were used in the proofs you have
received. However, many of those figures were submitted with fonts
that were not outlined and with fonts that AGU do not support. Thus,
the figures in question (P04, F04, P07, F08, P08 & F08) have taken on
font substitutes. In order to resolve the font substitute issues,
please make sure to outline the fonts prior to resubmitting. Doing
this will make them vector based objects instead of font
files. Another solution would be to use a more common font style such
as ARIAL or TIMES NEW ROMAN. Follows is a list of fonts found that
we can not support:
I was surprised because I did not realize that some figures (from the
same application) have embedded fonts while others are in outline
mode. I am further surprised that AGU do not support CM fonts.
Critically, I do not know how to "outline" fonts at all. What I have
done in producing the final figures is to use the endfloat package to
shift figures to separate pages at the end of my compiled PS file,

useful replies. A static control one pixel larger than the TextWidth
seems to contain the text nicely.
In Mac OS X I have tried the same technique, but the answer is
slightly different from the actual size...
