## Computers and Typesetting

Edition: 2nd edition Authors: Alexander Borbon A. Computers and Typesetting is a 5-volume set of books by Donald Knuth published in describing the TeX and Metafont systems for digital typography. Knuth's computers and typesetting project was the result of his frustration with the lack of decent software for the typesetting of mathematical and technical documents. The results of this project include TeX for typesetting, Metafont for font construction and the Computer Modern typefaces that are the default fonts used by TeX.

The book set stands as a tour de force demonstration of literate programming. The books themselves were typeset in the Computer Modern Roman typeface using TeX; thus, in Knuth's words, they "belong to the class of sets of books that describe precisely their own appearance.

The set is also available as a hardcover boxed set with the latest editions as of the year Metafont is a description language used to define raster fonts. It is also the name of the interpreter that executes Metafont code, generating the bitmap fonts that can be embedded into e. Metafont was devised by Donald Knuth as a counterpart to his TeX typesetting system.

## Computers & Typesetting, Volume A: The TeXBook

WEB is a computer programming system created by Donald E. Knuth as the first implementation of what he called "literate programming": the idea that one could create software as works of literature, by embedding source code inside descriptive text, rather than the reverse, in an order that is convenient for exposition to human readers, rather than in the order demanded by the compiler.

Typesetting is the composition of text by means of arranging physical types or the digital equivalents.

Stored letters and other symbols are retrieved and ordered according to a language's orthography for visual display. Typesetting requires one or more fonts. One significant effect of typesetting was that authorship of works could be spotted more easily, making it difficult for copiers who have not gained permission. MetaPost refers to both a programming language and the interpreter of the MetaPost programming language.

Both are derived from Donald Knuth's Metafont language and interpreter. The language shares Metafont's declarative syntax for manipulating lines, curves, points and geometric transformations. It tries to emulate a mathematician's style of handwriting mathematical entities on a blackboard, which is upright rather than italic. All the alphabets were implemented with the computer-assisted design system Metafont developed by Knuth.

Zapf designed and drew the Euler alphabets in —81 and provided critique and advice of digital proofs in and later.

The typeface family is copyright by American Mathematical Society, Siegel finished the Metafont Euler digitization project as his M. It was intended to accompany the Euler mathematical font which it partners in Knuth's book Concrete Mathematics. It has a darker appearance than its more famous sibling, Computer Modern.
