Computing > the difference of the bitmaps ? for latex2e we do use a huge set of regression test files that do produce certified output that can automatically be compared (comparing log files). unfortunately that scheme does not work in this case as something like \showoutput will produce completely different results since the logical glyph positions are recorded. but one idea of my head: as long as the implementation does used virtual fonts, what about this procedure: for F in testfiles ; do - produce F1.dvi from F using current encoding scheme - produce F2.dvi from F using new encoding scheme - run F2.dvi through the program that removes the virtual fonts from the dvi (was it dvi2dvi?) resulting in F3.dvi - compare F1.dvi with F3.dvi perhaps by first converting the file via dvitype or something to a more human readable form (or perhaps try cmp first and if the files differ do diff of ascii forms of the dvi files) just some thought ... frank
