Installing other fonts

The "fontfile" statement is used to override a Mup font with some other font. You may place one or more of these anywhere in Mup input. This might be used either because you'd like a different style of printing, or because you need a different alphabet. The "mkmupfnt" program that is distributed with Mup can be used to generate a font description file. You can then use

	fontfile "file"

in your Mup program, where the given "file" is the name of the font description file. The manual page for mkmupfnt describes how to use that program. It also describes the format of the font description file, in case you wish to generate it by some means other than the mkmupfnt program.

Mup searches for fontfiles via the MUPPATH mechanism, just like for included files.
