commit 9fecee06a1f096a2e8dd760851490bf74e382f6b
Author: G. Branden Robinson <>
AuthorDate: Mon Jul 11 06:23:03 2022 -0500

    afmtodit(1): Clarify and tighten.
    * More clearly distinguish PostScript font files from metrics files for
      the purpose of use with groff "download" files.
    * Drop description of "text.enc" file (already discussed in grops(1));
      it is not used by afmtodit(1) and not relevant here.
