The utility emmathfnt.exe and associated batch file emmathfnt.bat and
package ExportToEPSWithFonts.m are just not working for me on my Windows
98 system with Mathematica 4.
I start with a Plot graphics object that includes, say, the symbol "/"
(or even parentheses) that are normally rendered within Mathematica by
MathMono fonts. I can export this in the usual way via Export to get a
PostScript file. See, e.g., the attached base2.eps.
If I try to use the function ExportToEPSWithFonts instead, the pop-up
DOS window gives two Out of Enviroment Space error messages and then a
File Not Found message.
If, instead, I try to use the emmathfnt.bat file (with the path
references appropriately adjusted), in the form
emmathfnt.bat -o base2out.eps base2.eps scratch
then I get the indicated output file, but it is shorter than the input
file base2.eps and is no longer a legitimate PostScript file that can be
understood by either GhostView or Adobe Distiller. If I leave out the
third, scratch file, argument, the program hangs.
I've even tried manually typing the commands from the emmathfnt.bat file
directly at a DOS session from within Windows (actually, a console
session from within the TakeCommand command line utility that seems to
avoid the environment problem), but with the same disastrous resuls.
