TFM file extension - Tagged Font Metric data

What is tfm file? How to open tfm files?

File type specification:

Font and typeface file type icon Font and typeface file type

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.

A document preparation system for high-quality typesetting, LaTeX is used to create medium-to-large technical or scientific documents but it can be used for almost any form of publishing.

Help how to open:

This file type is not meant to be opened directly, there is no software that could open and work with it directly, or there is no information available in public sources about opening this file type. This is usually the case of some internal data files, caches, temporary files etc.

How to convert:

As far as we know, this .tfm file type can't be converted to any other file format. This is usually the case of system, configuration, temporary, or data files containing data exclusive to only one software and used for its own purposes. Also some proprietary or closed file formats cannot be converted to more common file types in order to protect the intellectual property of the developer, which is for example the case of some DRM-protected multimedia files.
