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

 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 (preliminary)

 t1rawafm generates a "raw" (kernless and ligatureless) AFM file
             given a font file (PFB/PFA)

 t1reencode changes a PostScript Type 1 fon't embedded encoding

 t1testpage creates a PostScript test page for a specified
             font file (preliminary)

 ttftotype42 converts TrueType or TrueType-flavored OpenType font
             programs into PostScript Type 42 format

LCDF-TypeTools also includes the multiple-master font tools formerly distributed as mminstance. These tools allow 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.
