Summary0000024: support font matrix manipulation for non-type1 fonts
DescriptionFor Type1 fonts, there can be maplines such as this:

There is currently no way to do the same for TTF or OTF fonts
TagsNo tags attached.

Probably all of this trickery should be done via /Tm, also for Type1

i guess SlantFont should not have been in a mapfile/line at all (to be deprecated), as slant has nothing to do with the connection/mapping between tfm name (tfm metrics) and font file name (font metrics). it seems to be cleaner (and easier) to do this as font definition, e. g., \font\cmrsl cmr10 at 10pt slanted 1200, then one can use the same tfm font in different slants by changing the TM, also consistent for all font types. One could even disconnect slant from the font completely, adding a \slantfont primitive? But this separation might make font switching tedious. In any case one would get rid of these specially crafted exotic PS font names "*-Slant_i", which are complicating font replacement from embedded PDF files.

should be fixed in SVN 3246. mapfile interface unchanged (note 0000370 above not implemented).
