tools for OpenType, multiple-master, and Type 1 fonts


LCDF Typetools comprises several programs for manipulating PostScript Type 1, Type 1 multiple master, and OpenType fonts.

Programs to manipulate OpenType, multiple-master, and Type 1 fonts:

 * cfftot1
   allows you to translate Compact Font Format (CFF)
   or PostScript-flavored OpenType fonts
   into PostScript Type 1 font format.
 * otfinfo
   reports information about OpenType fonts,
   such as the features they support.
   and the contents of their "size" optical size option
 * otftotfm
   allows you to create TeX font metrics and encodings
   for using PostScript-flavored OpenType fonts.
   NB! This tool requires the additional package texlive-binaries.
 * t1dotlessj
   creates a Type 1 font with a single character --
   the dotless j corresponding to the specified design.
 * t1lint
   checks a Type 1 font for correctness
 * t1rawafm
   generates a "raw" (kernless and ligatureless) AFM file
   given a font file (PFB/PFA).
 * t1reencode
   changes a PostScript Type 1 font embedded encoding.
 * t1testpage
   creates a PostScript test page for a specified font file
 * ttftotype42
   converts TrueType or TrueType-flavored OpenType font programs
   into PostScript Type 42 format.

LCDF-TypeTools also includes the multiple-master font tools allowing you to use multiple-master fonts with programs that require single-master fonts (afm2tfm, ps2pk, fontinst, etc.). Both programs work fine with fonts that contain intermediate masters (e.g., Adobe Jenson MM and Adobe Kepler MM).

 * mmafm
   creates an AFM (Adobe font metric) file
   corresponding to a single instance of a multiple-master font.
   It reads (and therefore requires) the AMFM and AFM files
   distributed with the font.
 * mmpfb
   creates a normal, single-master font program
   that looks like an instance of a multiple-master font.
   It reads the multiple-master font program in PFA or PFB format.

LCDF stands for Little Cambridgeport Design Factory.
