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.
