fonts/tex-dancers - The NetBSD Packages Collection

Font for Conan Doyle's "The Dancing Men"

The (Sherlock Holmes) book contains a code which uses dancing
men as glyphs. The alphabet as given is not complete, lacking
f, j, k, q, u, w, x and z, so those letters in the font are not
due to Conan Doyle. The code required word endings to be marked
by the dancing man representing the last letter to be holding a
flag: these are coded as A-Z.

man has no arms, making it impossible for him to hold a flag.
In these cases, he is wearing a flag on his hat in the
'character'. The font is distributed as Metafont source; it
works poorly in modern environments, and could do with expert
attention (if you are interested, please contact the CTAN team
for details).
