t1libconfig [ -v,--version ] [ -h,--help ] --force ] [ fontdirectory... ]


t1libconfig scans a list of directories for Type 1 fonts and font metric files, and generates a configuration file and font database file for the t1lib rasterizer library accordingly. By default, it looks in all subdirectories of /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts, and in /usr/lib/ghostscript. Extra directories to search may be specified on the command line. The t1libconfig script tries not to scan the same directory twice (this is, however, not foolproof, since /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts and /usr/lib/X11/fonts typically point to the same directory on GNU/Linux systems).


Print the version of t1libconfig and exit.
Print help about usage and exit.
Force the generation of new configuration files even if these files already exist on the system.
