This is the users manual for METAFONT, a companion to the TEX typesetting system. The system makes it fairly easy to define high quality fonts of type in a machine-independent manner a user writes programs in a new language developed for this purpose.

The manual also sketches the algorithms used by the system to draw the character shapes. Author
