download [-f] [-p printer] [-m name] [-H directory] [file...]
Requested fonts are named in a comment (marked with %%DocumentFonts:) in the input files. Available fonts are the ones listed in the map table selected using the -m option.
The map table consists of fontname-file pairs. The fontname is the full name of the PostScript font, exactly as it would appear in a %%DocumentFonts: comment. The file is the pathname of the host resident font. A file that begins with a / is used as is. Otherwise the pathname is relative to the host font directory. Comments are introduced by % (as in PostScript) and extend to the end of the line.
The only candidates for downloading are fonts listed in the map table that point download to readable files. A font is downloaded once, at most. Requests for unlisted fonts or inaccessible files are ignored. All requests are ignored if the map table can not be read.
% % The first string is the full PostScript font name. The second string % is the file name - relative to the host font directory unless it begins % with a /. % Bookman-Light bookman/light Bookman-LightItalic bookman/lightitalic Bookman-Demi bookman/demi Bookman-DemiItalic bookman/demiitalic
Using the file myprinter/map (in the default host font directory) as the map table, you could download fonts by issuing the following command:
download does not look for %%PageFonts: comments and there is no way to force multiple downloads of a particular font.
We do not recommend the use of full pathnames in either map tables or the names of map tables.
