textools - generate TeX map files, afm files, fix texmf trees


textools [ OPTIONS ... ] [ pattern or name or fromroot toroot ] [ MODIFIER OPTIONS ... ]


textools processes map files, converts Mac files to DOS format, generates map files, fixes texmf trees, and performs a utility-belt worth of other tasks also useful in installing and maintaining the zillion auxilliary files that tex(1) and its friends require.


The modifier options are listed after the options that they modify.
--downcasefilenames [--recurse] [--force]
--encmake afmfile encodingname
--findfile filename [--recurse]
--fixafmfiles [pattern] [--recurse]
--fixtexmftrees [texmfroot] [--force]
--hidemapnames [pattern] [--recurse]
--mactodos [pattern] [--recurse]
Fixes newlines from Macintosh files so that the file is readable in DOS.
--removemapnames [pattern] [--recurse]
--replacefile filename [--force]
--restoremapnames [pattern] [--recurse]
--showfont filename
--stripformfeeds [--recurse] [--force]
--tpmmake tpmfile
Package files into a t-modulename.tpm file. Imagine this file structure:
where t-modulename.tpm is a valid tpm file. When you run
textools --tpmmake t-modulename
the textools command will replace file sizes declared in the tpm file with proper values and create a ZIP archive t-modulename.zip with the files specified by the tpm file. This command needs to be run in the root of the TEXMF tree.
--unzipfiles [pattern] [--recurse]
--updatetree fromroot toroot [--force --nocheck --merge --delete]
--videmapnames [pattern] [--recurse]
