Is this possible and if so; how?
I’ve read of people doing it, there have been programs written to do it, so yes, it’s possible. But I have never done it, and it sounds…somewhat painful. If I understand it correctly, you need to translate a binary font metric ﬁle into ASCII (PFM to AFM). I’ve heard that you can ﬁnd the AFM ﬁle for almost any Postscript printer font at Adobe’s FTP site, though I’ve never been there to conﬁrm it. It would probably take some serious digging to ﬁnd, but it’s out there somewhere. If you have a p2p application, do a ﬁlename search.
Jeﬀerson, thanks for your help. I
