I suppose that people are still using them.  It doesn't hurt if they
are still available.

The script now supports eurofont, garamond, lettergothic and utopia.
I'm looking forward for suggestions.

There will certainly be not so many fonts that it is worth to have
more than one script.  Actually tere are two, getfont and getfont-sys
(the latter should be a symlink).

The current version can be downloaded for testing from


but if you only want to browse the code, it might be more convenient
to look at


It would be nice if I could use vanilla ftp with a here-document piped
into it, but it didn't work.  Don't know why.

Thus I check for lftp, ncftpget, wget, curl, and snarf and use the
first one I find in $PATH.  If someone knows other ftp clients, let me
know.  I will support them as well then.

Comments are welcome.

Microsoft isn't the answer. Microsoft is the question, and the answer is NO.
