Maybe we can have a script "getfonts" in TL which downloads and
executes "getfont" from CTAN.  This way "getfont" can be extended
while "getfonts" is burnt on a CD. Internet access is required anyway.

The current version can be downloaded for testing from 


or for browsing from


Supported fonts are now:

    eurofont:      Euro symbols (Adobe).
    dayroman:      DayRoman (Apostrophiclabs)
    garamond:      GaramondNo8 (URW).
    lettergothic:  LetterGothic (URW).
    luximono:      LuxiMono (Bigelow & Holmes)
    utopia:        Utopia (Adobe).

Ralf Stubner suggested to support DayRoman and LuxiMono and to provide
all files needed instead of only the pfb files.  I now download
Walter's stuff as well, but I'm not sure whether eurofont is complete.

I changed a few things as proposed by George White and Thomas Esser.

Since I'm not able to use vanilla ftp ("ftp ftp.dante.de < responses")
I search for other ftp clients in $PATH.

At the moment these are lftp, ncftpget, wget, curl, snarf, and gftp.

lftp, curl and snarf had been reported by Hartmut Henkel, but
certainly there are more.

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