Here a summary of problems, as reported by my new verifycs PERL Script,
found the second beta-release of Sebastian's psfonts (as of 970212):
some names are defined more than once, either with identical
definitions (psyr, pzcmi8r) or with different definitions (phvro8rn).
(2) a whole bunch of `missing FONTCHECKSUM' errors in VF files. When a VF
file references another font it should contain the checksum of the
TFM file. For example the ptmr.vpl references the ptmr8r font
without such a FONTCHECKSUM line.
(MAPFONT D 0
(FONTCHECKSUM O ooooooooo) <=== missing
(FONTAT R 1.0)
(FONTDSIZE R 10.0)
(3) incorrect checksums are reported for phvb8r.tfm (and some other
Helvetica fonts). Problem may be caused by the fact that mine
versions of AFM files differ from those Sebastian is using. If you
send me Helvetica-Bold.afm I will check.
(4) different versions of verifycs. Let us keep the latest one. Because
the place for 8r.enc has changed from tools/8r.enc to ./8r.enc I
changed the default for ENCPATH into
$ENCPATH = ".:tools//";
Success with solving the problems,
