13.2 Font creation tools

The sources for the feta font are written in metafont. The definitive reference for metafont is "The METAFONT book". Source for the book is available at CTAN.

mf2pt1 is used to create type 1 fonts from the metafont sources.

FontForge is used to postprocess the output of mf2pt1 and clean up details of the font. It can also be used by a developer to display the resulting glyph shapes.
