You should have unpacked the texmf tarball in
  /cs/local/generic/lib/pkg/teTeX-1.0.0/share/texmf
That should have given you (among others) the file
/cs/local/generic/lib/pkg/teTeX-1.0.0/share/texmf/xdvi/XDvi.

Did you do that?

teTeX-2.0.2: another texconfig fix

texconfig should no longer try to call fmtutil --byfmt mfw. Doing
so gives

Nothing in (the original) teTeX refers to these files. Correct me if I
am wrong. If something in debian refers to these files, debian should
provide them.

teTeX *has* encoding files for all text fonts of the CM set. They are
extracted from the BSR type1 files and should be 100% correct. Just look

Re: Building tetex on HP-UX 11.0

So, if you have gcc on your system, the unusual CFLAGS should not
be added.

 A bit dissapointed since my bad experiences with HP ANSI cc I've 
 configured with HP cc  as
 ANSI C compiler and gcc as C++ compiler (configure allows gcc to act as 
 C++ compiler !!)

The GNU C++ compiler should be called as g++, I think.

 I skip someway that step?

Yes, two possibilities:
  ./configure --with-system-ncurses
or
  ./configure --without-dialog

 On the other hand I can try to fix hashmap.c which seems to be badly 
 build by the cpp (ufff)

 machines? Can we act as repository for
 anyone wanting to install tetex on a HP-UX machine? We (as Bancoval) 
 have modestly funded tex users group, but we would like to cooperate in 
 a more active way...

As long as the relative structure (binaries vs. texmf tree) is
kept intact, the binaries can even be used by other people in other
directories. The usual rules apply, so if you have used non-standard
shared libraries (e.g. for X11 or some curses lib), other people will
need that, too.

 Of course both files can be in different texmf trees and should be

Ok, sure. E.g. a texdocrc.defaults in a local texmf tree makes sense.

Re: texdoctk 0.5.2 beta3

2003-02-24 Thread Thomas Esser
 The path searched by kpsewhich contains . as its first element, so
 $sysrc points to a file texdocrc.defaults in the current working
 directory instaed of the real system file.
 
 This is not bad in general, but obviously the value of $sysrc is used
 to find the database file as well.

texdocrc.defaults is written to $HOME when the options are saved. This
is against Thomas R.'s intention and was introduced in TeX Live. I have
fixed this in beta4 (Thomas R. has written to me that he has no time
to work on texdoctk at the moment): the saved settings are not (again)
stored in $HOME/.texdocrc .

Maybe, an additional fix might be helpful:
  - my $database=$datadir/texdoctk.dat;
  + my $database=`kpsewhich --progname=texdoctk --format=${qq}other text files${qq} 
texdoctk.dat`;

This is to fix the situation where a locally installed older texdoctk
in a local texmf tree had a texdocrc.defaults but no texdoctk.dat in
the local tree (older versions of texdoctk have used different names
for the database files).

Comments on this change?

Re: kpesewhich BeOS (long)

 I am trying to use tetex in BeOS and have managed to compile it making 
 some small changes that I will post later for reference.
...
 fmtutil: config file `fmtutil.cnf' not found.

kpathsea translates search path read from texmf.cnf on unix-like systems
by replacing ; - :. The unix-defection can be found in texk/kpathsea/cnf.c:

/* gcc -ansi doesn't predefine `unix', since ANSI forbids it.  And AIX
   generally doesn't predefine unix, who knows why.  HP-UX is, of course,
   also different.  Apple's MacOsX is also unix-like.  */
#ifndef unix
#if defined (__unix__) || defined (_AIX) || defined (_HPUX_SOURCE)
#define unix
#elif defined (__APPLE__)  defined (__MACH__)
#define unix
#elif defined (__NetBSD__)
#define unix
#endif
#endif

I think that your system needs to be added with an appropriate detection.
Note, that the same detection is implemented in texk/dviljk/config.h.

To explain why some of your searches work, while others don't: kpathsea
has one search path that it never takes from texmf.cnf and that's the
search path for texmf.cnf itself. If you say
  kpsewhich fmtutil.cnf
then kpathsea does not search in the web2c files search path, but in
the path for texmf.cnf (.cnf format).

The same happens if you say
  kpsewhich --format='web2c\ files' fmtutil.cnf
or
  kpsewhich --format='blubber kpathsea does not know' fmtutil.cnf

The web2c files format (if you don't cripple it by misspelling it with
a backslash), however is read via texmf.cnf and there, you are hit by
the missing ; - : translation.

Argh... If only these #ifdef's could be replaced by a proper autoconf
check...

Re: dvipdft is missing?

2003-02-15 Thread Thomas Esser
 We, tetex maintainers of Debian, got the bug which said
 that teTeX 2.0 included dvipdfm but a wrapper script
 dvipdft was missing (in the teTeX 2.0 source tree).

When I added dvipdfm to teTeX, I have looked at the dvipdft and found
that it writes to /tmp in an insecure way. Then, just before making the
teTeX-2.0 release, I have forgotten that item...

 Apparently, dvipdft was referenced in a manual page of dvipdfm.
 Is there any chance that dvipdft will be included in teTeX?

Yes, but not the original script. It needs to be fixed for security.

Re: `@' sign in path not treated properly

   I've tried to compile current TeTex on Tru64Unix 5.1A with latest
 version of compilers from Compaq/HP, and I got the error below. Please, cc
 me in any replies.

The fix suggested by Albert Chin looks ok. Olaf Weber (web2c + kpathsea
maintainer) has decided to use % as separator instead as a short-term
solution and to get rid of that code in the long term.

 Please note, that configure forced usage CFLAGS -Olimit 1000 -std1 .
 -std1 makes cc into more strict mode, although it is sometimes better
 than standard -std. I'm not sure about limiting the optimization by
 default. I don't think it's a good idea and I as a user did not ask for
 it either.

That optimization limit was added to work around some compiler bugs
which produced incorrect code with higher optimization. That -std1
was needed, too at some point.

 sign. Maybe this is the same problem, I don't know, maybe it's enough to
 recreate configure with never auto* tools.

No, since automake is not used and the code in question is used in
some Makefile.in.

Re: Broken pipe, teTeX dvips, Redhat linux

2003-02-13 Thread Thomas Esser
 I have a problem with dvips(k) 5.86 of tetex-1.0.7-57 under linux
 Redhat 8.

RedHat has turned on secure mode in dvips (by a setting in dvips's config.ps)
to fix a security problem in the print filter despite the following facts:
  - printing dvi files to lpr does not work if the file references eps
graphics from the user's directory (so in fact, it does not make
much sense to have this support in the print filter)
  - the dvips version is broken because secure mode cannot be turned
on via commandline option
  - secure mode also affects the output pipe specified in the config file

The last two bugs are fixed in teTeX-2.0's dvips (dvips(k) 5.92b).

Re: teTeX-2.0, libwww, linux

2003-02-12 Thread Thomas Esser
 If I try to compile the www library in a linux (redhat-8.0) system,
 there is a header that is missing. I added an
 #include netdb.h

configure checks for netdb.h and sets HAVE_NETDB_H in wwwconf.h.
Please, check if this has worked on your system. Look into config.cache
(in libs/libwww) if HAVE_NETDB_H is not set.

wwwsys.h includes netdb.h if HAVE_NETDB_H is set. Is there some .c file
includes HTDNS.h without including wwwsys.h before? You somehow have
missed to send the actual error message...

 people use an already installed libwww. I like to compile my own TeX
 and have its binaries independent of redhat's supplied libs.

I regulary compile libwww on my linux (non-redhat system) without any
problem.

 what's the reason that you changed file names of the archives and
 of the toplevel directory from teTeX-src-2.0 to tetex-src-2.0 
 only about two days before release in rc2 ?

A challenge for people who depend on these names :-)

 I really like and try seeing TeX not being spelled tex -- and even worse,
 it broke my scripts for automated builds... ;-)

There is no really good reason. Axel Thimm told me something about
standars in rpm names and that made me think about my archive names
(don't get me wrong: Axel has not suggested that I change the naming
convention; it was my own idea).

updmap + cm-super

2003-02-03 Thread Thomas Esser
Bob Tennent notified by, that updmap (in teTeX-2.0) generates wrong
output for the map files of cm-super for dvipdfm. The following patch
should fix this (and other cases where the name of the .enc file contains
characters other than [A-Za-z0-9]).

  The files / installation
===

  You can get teTeX-2.0 from the following server:
ftp://cam.ctan.org/tex-archive/systems/unix/teTeX/2.0/distrib/   (UK)

  Other servers will follow shortly:
ftp://dante.ctan.org/tex-archive/systems/unix/teTeX/2.0/distrib/ (GER)

  A full list of mirrors is available here:
ftp://cam.ctan.org/tex-archive/CTAN.sites

  From these servers, you need the following files for teTeX-2.0:

  sources of the programs (required):
== tetex-src-2.0.tar.gz

  support tree with fonts / macros (required):
== tetex-texmf-2.0.tar.gz

  sources for parts of the texmf tarball (optional):
== tetex-texmfsrc-2.0.tar.gz

  The installation instructions are included in the tetex-src.tar.gz
  archive as files INSTALL (complete instructions) and QuickInstall
  (short version).


===
  Windows and MacOS X versions

===
  Documentation / getting started
===

  teTeX contains a lot of documentation about the packages it includes.
  For a start, please look at
texmf/doc/tetex/TETEXDOC.{ps,pdf,dvi}
  and
texmf/doc/index.html
  texmf means the directory in which you have unpacked the tetex-texmf
  tarball during the installation process

  provide teTeX in repacked and compiled form and I am willing to maintain
  links to such resources on teTeX's web page. I think that I will do
  a better service to the TeX community by concentrating on the three
  tarballs (src, texmf, texmfsrc) and shorter release cycles, than by
  providing binaries and repacking the distribution.

Re: Possible byte-order problems in TeX format files with -rc1

2003-02-02 Thread Thomas Esser
 I'm sharing format, pool and base files between a sparc64 (32-bit
 userspace) box and an i386 box --- or I was; but between 20021225 and
 -rc1, the byte-order independence of these files has broken, even
 without NO_DUMP_SHARE; all .base, .fmt. .efmt and .mem files differ
 between those platforms now.

Do you get error messages when trying to use a format file from platform
x on platform y? If yes, can you provide a testcase for me?

 This could be due to the hanging instance of NO_FMTBASE_SHARE (which
 should be NO_DUMP_SHARE) in config.h, but since I don't have 64-bit

That really looks like a bug.

I have just successfully used a i366-linux generated format file
(tex.fmt and latex.fmt) on a sparc-solaris. So, I don't see anything
wrong...

Re: texmfsrc LICENSE

2003-02-01 Thread Thomas Esser
 fixed the problem. I recommend upgrading all config.guess/config.sub
 files in the tree.

Done, thanks.

 I'm also testing on Solaris, HP-UX, IRIX, Redhat Linux, and AIX. I'm
 out for the rest of the day but will continue tomorrow.

Good. omega is known to be broken due to obsolete files in the texmf tree.
Anybody who wants to test it should get
  http://www-b.informatik.uni-hannover.de/~te/omega-update.tar.gz
and unpack it in the texmf tree.

On RedHat, please try lambda on the following file (but make sure to get the
omega-update first):
  \documentclass{article}
  \usepackage{trace}
  \begin{document}
  \traceon
  \leavevmode
  X\font\test cmbx10\relax

Re: teTeX-2.0-rc1: two requests

2003-01-31 Thread Thomas Esser
 1) Would it be possible to have a configure option to use the xpdf libraries
 already installed on the system?  (We package them already in Fink.)

It is quite late for that request (the release is planned for this
weekend). Do you mean that you have libxpdf.a (resp. .so) and libGoo.a
(resp. so) and the header files installed at standard places? If I manage
to implement this, can you check if this works ok within a few hours?

 2) Would it be possible to include the License statement inside the tarball,
 instead of separately as in v.1.0?  This would make it much easier for me
 to document the license within the Fink system.

That's easier form me to do. Which tarball do you mean (src tarball or
texmf tarball)?

 Aside from that, I can verify that teTeX-2.0-rc1 compiles and runs just
 fine on Darwin/Mac OS X.

Oh, that's just good news.

 P.S. It looks like Knuth is getting ready to release his new versions of
 TeX and MetaFont just in time for teTeX-2.0 !

It would have been in time if there had not been non-trivial dependencies
to eTeX and Omega. We have decided not to defer teTeX-2.0 for Knuth'
changes. I did include all the updates to the texmf tree, however,
so we have plain.tex version 3.14159265.

 Definitely the right thing to do.  If you have found them on CTAN in a
 location outside of the nonfree tree, you should notify the CTAN
 maintainers: it would be definitely not nice to Addison Wesley and
 Knuth to suggest by a bad placement of those files that people were
 allowed to use them freely.

Robin, are you listening?

Re: How can I instruct dvips to use outline fonts instead of the CMones?

 Computer Modern fonts?

The following works with standard teTeX-1.0. I don't know if this is
different in RedHat's version...

  cd `kpsewhich -expand-var='$TEXMFMAIN'`/dvips/config
  vi updmap # or use a different editor

Re: teTeX dvips/bluesky/bsr.map and updmap

2003-01-28 Thread Thomas Esser
 I am a Japanese pTeX on teTeX user.   I use TeXShop and dvipdfm
 program to compile TeX and preview on my Mac OS X, which needs
 reencode files for computer modern fonts which are remapped by
 dvipdfm.

Can you please explain, why you think that you need reencoding for all
fonts in the bsr set? The idea of reencoding is to help the reader to
find ligatures (if you have a version with the search option) and to
help text extraction.

I don't see a benefit for reencoding e.g. cmbsy10. In the map files from
the author of dvipdfm, only the pure text fonts have been reencoded
(see cmr.map in the dvipdfm distribution).

 While making this encode files, I found updmap didnot work on Mac OS
 X since sed cannot understand replacement statements like
 's/\(.*\)/\0 \1/'.   '' mark do the same work as '\0' on Mac OS X
 and '\0' is just a letter '0'.   I don't know how to avoid this
 matter.

I just have fixed a few compatibility problems with updmap and I hope
that the teTeX-2.0 version will be good enough. If you want to test it
now, get it from here:

Re: 20030112 breaks dvips -o |lpr

2003-01-16 Thread Thomas Esser
[added Tomas Rokicki to the recepients, throwing him into this
 discussion]

Hi,

-o |lpr no longer works, because the default config file of dvips now
correctly sets secure mode on. Secure mode can be turned off by putting
z0 into a config file for dvips or by specifying -R0 on the commandline
(that -R0 does not work in the dvips contained in RedHat 8.0 which makes
the problem even worse there).

When I decided to enable secure mode in dvips, I thought it was a good
thing to make sure that command execution via special's is disabled by
default. I was not aware that this includes almost all command execution
of dvips (font generation is controled separately), including output
pipes.

So, I think that many teTeX users will be suprised if teTeX-2.0 comes
with security on by default in dvips.

Tomas, I don't think that the output pipe is a security concern, since
it cannot be set via the dvi file. Do you think that you can change the
implementation of secure mode to allow the output pipe?

Re: 20030112 breaks dvips -o |lpr

2003-01-16 Thread Thomas Esser
 Don't see the necessity.  root filters (like in line spoolers) are
 run in separate directories and with command line options specified
 by the filter programmer.

Full ACK. Whoever writes such a filter should know what he is doing and
put something like an explicit -f or -o argument into the commandline
of dvips.

Re: When teTeX 2.0 will be released?

2003-01-07 Thread Thomas Esser
 Sorry to ask this again but is there any rough
 plan when teTeX 2.0 will be released?

Hopefully in some days. My plan is to wait for pdftex-1.10a and that's
not yet released.

 I heard once that it would be near the end of 2002
 but it is 2003 already ;)

The beginning of 2003 is near the end of 2002, isn's it?

 these two, if possible --- this will also simplify the situation for

Your users should not notice much of the separation into two trees if
you set up both texmf trees in the system-wide texmf.cnf file.

Re: A mislocated tfm?

2002-12-27 Thread Thomas Esser
 why (in the latest tetex texmf) exists the file
 /fonts/tfm/adobe/times/psyro.tfm ?

One character of that font is used by zptmcm7m.

 If it is Adobe Symbol Slanted metrics, why is it
 the times directory?

Maybe, because the metrics of psyro.tfm are just needed for zptmcm7m?

 BTW. Is psyro referenced anywhere in postscript maps?

Yes.

 What is the PS font psyro.tfm describes?

It is a slanted Symbol:
  psyro Symbol .167 SlantFont

psyro.tfm comes via CTAN:macros/latex/required/psnfss/lw35nfss.zip
into teTeX.

Re: make failed with 20021225 beta

2002-12-26 Thread Thomas Esser
 sortid.c: In function `sort_idx':
 sortid.c:53: `LC_COLLATE' undeclared (first use in this function)
 sortid.c:53: (Each undeclared identifier is reported only once
...

Willem Jan Palenstijn has found the reason for this and submitted
a patch:

  From what I can tell, it's caused by checks for libz and the C
  preprocessor conflicting with eachother in texk/dvipdfm. The check for
  libz sets CPP to a temp value, and then starts the preprocessor check,
  which then writes the (very broken) temp value to the config.cache,
  which causes the locale.h check to break in texk/makeindexk/configure.
  ...

A possible fix is to invoke AC_PROG_CPP in texk/dvipdfm/configure.in
after AC_PROG_CC. If you have autoconf-1.13 installed, then you
can update your configure script by
  cd texk/dvipdfm; autoconf -m ../etc/autoconf
I just have put a fixed texk/dvipdfm/configure script at
  http://www.dbs.uni-hannover.de/~te/configure

Another possible workaround is to omit --with-system-zlib. 

 I'm not sure this is a bug or a problem of my system
 but I hope this will help anyway.

No, it is not a bug os your system.

Re: europs

2002-12-07 Thread Thomas Esser
 I want to use the Euro-character in LaTeX. Therefore I tried to install  
 the europs.sty package under teTeX in Mac OS X, but without success.

teTeX-beta includes the eurosym package for more than two months now.
You can try this if your Mac OS X port of teTeX already includes that
package. Documentation is included in texmf/doc/fonts/eurosym.

 Perhaps I should not extract the eurofont.zip for Windows and rename  
 the extracted files appropriately, but adapt the eurofont.sea.hqx for  
 Mac somehow.

I don't think that this is the problem. pdftex works fine with usual
type1 fonts. I'd guess that there are missing or incorect lines in your
map files that pdftex uses.

But, since Rowland McDonnell (author of the eurofont package) is a MAC
user, I sugggest that you contact him directly: [EMAIL PROTECTED]

Re: teTeX-src-beta-20021114: logo fonts

I can recommend everyone who really wants to read the weave-output to
run pdftex instead of tex on these files. Due to pdfwebmac.tex, the
output has wonderful references in the pdf file.

But, I think that I am not going to distribute the typeset documentation

Re: Quick question regarding -src-specials

2002-12-01 Thread Thomas Esser
 It is a well-known problem that there are quite a few TeX versions
 are around where -src-specials will cause the equivalent of
 \usepackage{indentfirst}, namely causing chapter beginnings and the
 like under LaTeX to be indented.

I think that teTeX-beta never had this bug. It was introduced by a last
minute web2c-fix, shortly before TeX Live 7 was released.  I was unsure
about that fix and had not aapplied it to teTeX-beta.

 Are there any specific releases of teTeX-beta and/or TeXlive that one
 could recommend as not being afflicted in that particular manner?

I think that only the first versions of TeX Live 7 are affected. The
programs identify themself with a web2c-version that ends up with x,
7.3.7x I think.

Re: new dvips

2002-10-31 Thread Thomas Esser
  When we say that the character shifting issue has been corrected,
  do we mean that
   dvips -Ppdf ...   without either -G or -G0, 
  now works for computer modern, adobe postscript, and combinations of them?
  Is that right? 

It means that -G1 (as set e.g. via -Ppdf) does no longer produce
incorrect output.  The remapping of characters works for computer modern,
but it does not work for a lot of other fonts. The new dvips decides on
a per-font basis whether to remap it or not and it only remaps if that
won't mess up the result.

Re: dvips-ing TETEXDOC.dvi

2002-10-24 Thread Thomas Esser
 No doubt this is an FAQ somewhere, but if I use the '-Ppdf' option when
 dvips-ing TETEXDOC.dvi, the 'fi' ligatures turn into English pound
 symbols.  Further processing of the PS file with gs's ps2pdf doesn't
 help.  Using the '-Pcmz' option avoids this problem.  Perhaps I have
 misunderstood the reason for using '-Ppdf': should it be used only if
 one intends to immediately distill the PS file with Adobe's Acrobat
 distiller program? (Since I don't have this program, I can't test
 whether the resulting PDF file would be OK.)

That -Ppdf turn on a feature called character shifting and dvips is
not smart enough to detect that this does not work with all fonts. This
is fixed in newer version of dvips, but with the old version, you can
use -Ppdf -G0.

 TeX is used.  Is this desired?

texmf.cnf now has parse_first_line = f to ensure that TeX behaves

There are several ways to solve your problem:
  - you can set parse_first_line = t in your texmf.cnf
  - you can add parse_first_line.mpost = t in your texmf.cnf
  - you can invoke mpost with parse_first_line=t in the environment

The package does not automatically work on 64bit platforms.  Anyway,

Re: 18 less binaries built

 teTeX-src-beta-20020922
 teTeX-texmf-beta-20021006

 The following are missing from the list given in INSTALL:
 
 cont-en
 metafun

These should no longer be called directly. texexec supports them better.
The list in INSTALL is wrong and I'll fix that.

 iniomega lambda mkocp mkofm odvicopy odvitype ofm2opl omega omfonts
 opl2ofm otangle otp2ocp outocp ovf2ovp ovp2ovf viromega

Omega was temporarily removed from teTeX-beta. It is now back (with the
20021013 pretest).

With the 20021013 pretest, the list in INSTALL is much less wrong (because
Omega is back), but still:
  listed, but non-existing: cont-en metafun
  existing, but not listed: mktexfmt updmap

I just have fixed that for the next pretest.

Re: Stack size limit?

2002-09-11 Thread Thomas Esser

Dear David,

 I found that the following ditty which in earlier incarnations of my
 system just died almost immediately with a Segmentation Fault, will
 under current 2.4 Linux kernels under, say, RedHat's (null) beta,
 cause the machine to more or less freeze:
 
 tex '\def~{\if~}~'

My system (linux with 2.4.19 kernel) get slower, but tex is stopped with
  ! TeX capacity exceeded, sorry [main memory size=251].
after a few seconds.

 That's bad.  So perhaps one should let TeX automatically set a stack
 size limit, roughly what
 ulimit -s 1024 or so would do.

There are always ways to do weired things and to bring the system down
unless you set up limits that make the system unusable. I don't think
that adding such a system dependency is worth the trouble. Anyway,
the maintainer of web2c should decide that (since I aim to follow him
as closely as possible), so I'll forward him your request.

Re: eusm10/teTeX-20020906

2002-09-07 Thread Thomas Esser

Hi Reinhard,

 running make world I got the message
...
 Error: `tex -ini  -fmt=dklatex -progname=dklatex dklatex.ini' failed
...
 The message says that I have to update my format file but what I do
 not understand is why texconfig init dklatex works without any error
 messages.
 
 And the LaTeX version is the same as in 20020530.  What has been
 changed? 

I have added a TEXMFCNF=$(texmf)/web2c setting to the top-level
Makefile.in, but I don't think that this was really necessary.  So,
for now, I'll only pass TEXMFMAIN and PATH for the final mktexlsr,
fmtutil and texlinks calls.

I think that if you change
test -f $(scriptdir)/fmtutil  \
  TEXMFCNF=$(texmf)/web2c TEXMFMAIN=$(texmf) 
PATH=$(scriptdir):$(bindir):$(PATH) \
$(scriptdir)/fmtutil --all
test -f $(scriptdir)/texlinks  \
  TEXMF=$(texmf) TEXMFMAIN=$(texmf) PATH=$(scriptdir):$(bindir):$(PATH) \
$(scriptdir)/texlinks
to
test -f $(scriptdir)/fmtutil  \
  TEXMFMAIN=$(texmf) PATH=$(scriptdir):$(bindir):$(PATH) \
$(scriptdir)/fmtutil --all
test -f $(scriptdir)/texlinks  \

20020901 pretest

2002-09-01 Thread Thomas Esser

Hi,

I have uploaded a new teTeX-beta release, which will soon appear here:
  ftp://ftp.dante.de/tex-archive/systems/unix/teTeX-beta/teTeX-src-beta-20020901.tar.gz
  
ftp://ftp.dante.de/tex-archive/systems/unix/teTeX-beta/teTeX-texmf-beta-20020901.tar.gz

Main differences from previous release:
* remove libs/libtiff/mkversion binary
* more careful memory settings in texmf.in
* fix cleanup() in fmtutil, texconfig, texlinks, updmap
* new updmap options to allow to download standard fonts
  with dvips and pdftex

The new updmap options allow to set up dvips / pdftex to download the
standard fonts. Downloading the standard fonts gives you bigger files,
but this works around bugs where badly broken fonts would be used
instead of the original Adobe fonts when using some funny software or
postscript printer.

updmap generates two map files for pdftex: pdftex_dl14.map and
pdftex_ndl14.map (one with download and the other no download).
pdftex.map will be a symlink to one of the two, depending on what you
choose as pdftexDownloadBase14 (true/false) in your updmap configuration.

The setup for dvips is more user-friendly, because updmap generates
a default configuration for dvips (depending on dvipsDownloadBase35)
plus two additional map files that can be used to override the default
on the dvips commandline: -Pdownload35 resp. -Pbuildin35.

Re: Problems with texlinks and fmtutil

2002-08-31 Thread Thomas Esser

 this problem?  I'd always thought that exit x should set $? to x on all
 platforms.

I guess that the systems in question don't show rc=0 when executing the
following code:
  /bin/sh -c trap 'echo rc=\$?; exit \$rc' 0; false; exit 0

On Linux with bash and with the /bin/sh on Sun Solaris 2.7, I get rc=0,
however.

Anyway, I will use a common way for setting up $tmpdir and cleaning it up
in all my scripts using the technique of the new updmap.

The new way no longer calls the trap on signal 0 and needs an explicit
call to cleanup(). A graceful termination of the script will call true;
cleanup instead of exit 0.  The first motivation for the new technique
was to work around a bug on OS/X (where /bin/sh is a broken zsh)...

Thomas

PS: did anybody get any bounces / problem reports when sending to
[EMAIL PROTECTED] (not tetex-pretest!). There has not
been any message on the tetex list since july, 8th.  any I wonder

Re: documentation buglet

2002-08-02 Thread Thomas Esser

 I guess xdvik should try to mimick teTeX's defaults as close as
 possible (because most people installing xdvik will already have
 teTeX installed).

Well, the xdvik in teTeX does not install any map or config file nor
does it install the app-default file. If you want to follow, you need
to add some works about manual installation of these files or provide
a separate install-target (install-extradata or whatever name).

 fonts). Do we need some configure stuff for that, or can we maybe
 just rely on falling back to the PK fonts in that case, and maybe
 improve the explanation in the INSTALL file?

I guess that people fetching a separate xdvik will propably be reading
the INSTALL file, too. So, it should suffice to rely on falling back.

 Should we remove (or do nothing for) the .map and .cfg files in
 the texmf subtree in a teTeX install? I.e. only install XDvi?

I vote for do nothing for. For people doing a manual installation of
these files, I can send you my latest copies if you want.

That's right. The 30-5-2002 release was almost what I've send to Thomas.
Not exactly, but about the same. That kind of fine-tuning (e.g. put a

Re: 20020503 --with-mfw=mf

Hi Reinhard,

 ./configure --prefix=/usr/local/dtp --with-mfw=mf  make world
 `mfw -ini  -base=mfw -progname=mfw mf.ini' failed
 Obviously the binary mfw is missing.
...
 I wonder whether an interactive menue should appear during the
 installation process at all.

To solve this, I suggest to run fmtutil --all instead of
texconfig init. fmtutil will never be interactive.

Next is about your local fmtutil.cnf file. I guess that I could turn it
off by passing TEXMF=$(texmf) in the top-level Makefile, but I think
that people usually want to use their local config file.

Looking at the generated fmtutil.cnf, I found that --with-mfw=mf does
not disable the line for mfw, so that's indeed a bug (which was easy
to fix).

 without the configure option --prefix=/usr/local/dtp so that
 everything goes into /usr/local.  But the result was:

The default prefix of teTeX is /usr/local/teTeX.

Thanks for your report.

Re: 20020503 --with-mfw=mf

2002-06-02 Thread Thomas Esser

  To solve this, I suggest to run fmtutil --all instead of
  texconfig init. fmtutil will never be interactive.

 It was called by make install.

Sure. My suggestion was ment to be implemented by changing Makefile.in.

 It is probably sufficient to check whether there is an entry for mfw
 and provide a message.

I guess that it would be better to have only a line for mf in
fmtutil.cnf. fmtutil should then be changed to provide mfw.base as a
symlink to mf.base.

 I wonder why configure didn't complain that it couldn't find the texmf
 tree.  This is what it should check first and it should abort
 immediately with an error message.

Well, configure complains quite loudly if it cannot find the texmf tree.
It does not abort, because the full build (up to an install-exec)
can be done without the texmf tree.
