METAFONT (MF) is a new font-making compiler developed by D. E. Knuth here at the
lab. The standard version is obtainable by typing "r mf" to the monitor.
The user manual is still being written, although a few copies of a preliminary
version are floating around. There's no on-line or line-printer version,
but you might be able to figure out how to read MANUAL.TEX[MF,DEK]. And you
can draw the illustrations by "r mf" and "input manfig[mf,dek]".
The SAIL program contains extensive documentation about the implementation;
it's not merely "commented code". See file MFSYS.SAI[TEX,DEK] and the
files it references.
