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