File type specification:

Font and typeface file type icon Font and typeface file type

lwfn file icon: lwfn filetype icon

Fonts in PostScript are actually dictionaries. A font dictionary contains several operators. Most of these operators simply set up the path for a single character in the font. When PostScript needs to typeset an 'A' in the current font, it finds the operator specified in the font for 'A' and invokes it. This operator draws the letter. This means that there is no fundamental difference between letters and any other kind of ink on the page: text is graphics. A font is just a program to draw things, the current graphics state applies to text just as much as it applies to lines andcurves which your program draws. The fonts themselves are stored in a special dictionary of fonts, and they are named. If you want to retrieve a font by name, you need to use the findfont operator. findfont retrieves the font from the dictionary (if it is there) and leaves the font on the stack. You can then specify how big the font should be and make it the current font.
