I am having problems getting fontinst to work on an AFM file. The program complains when it sees the first line of kerning information: KPX space quotesinglbase -73.89 (I have included the full TeX error message below.) Apparently, fontinst can't handle real numbers, such as -73.89. If I edit the number to be an integer (-74), then fontinst works. Of course, I could write a script to round my kerning information to integers. But if anyone else has a better solution, I would appreciate knowing about it. Thanks, Thomas Wu ### TeX error message: This is TeX, Version 3.14159 (Web2c 7.1) (minion-fontinst.tex (/usr/local/share/texmf/tex/latex/inputs/fontinst/fontinst.sty (/usr/local/share/texmf/tex/latex/inputs/fontinst/trig.sty) No file fontinst.rc. ) (pmnr8a.afm !
