allneeded - force the calculation of all fonts now needed


allneeded [-r] files ...


allneeded forces the calculation of all fonts that are needed to preview a set of dvi files. Just specify where the program should search for files on the commandline. The fonts generation is triggered by running dvips(1) over all accessible dvi-files. Therefore, the fonts are created in the resolution needed by dvips. If the -r flag is specified, the command dvired(1) will be used instead of dvips. allneeded does not recalculate existing fonts (as long as the Metafont mode does not change).
