allcm forces a large number of Computer Modern Fonts to be calculated as pixel files. This is done through running dvips(1) over a certain test-file. Therefore, the fonts are created in the resolution needed by dvips.

If the -r flag is specified, the command dvired(1) will be used instead of dvips.

allcm does not recalculate existing fonts (as long as the Metafont mode does not change).
