What is tfm file? How to open tfm files?
File type specification:
The TFM file extension is associated with the TeX and used for its Tagged Font Metric file format.
Binary file used by TeX to provide information on TeX fonts. TeX is a typesetting language. Instead of visually formatting your text, you enter your manuscript text intertwined with TeX commands in a plain text file. You then run TeX to produce formatted output, such as a PDF file. Thus, in contrast to standard word processors, your document is a separate file that does not pretend to be a representation of the final typeset output, and so can be easily edited and manipulated.
