Programs to manipulate OpenType and multiple-master fonts

Edit Package lcdf-typetools

This package contains four tools for working with OpenType 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 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)

t1reencode reencodes a Type 1 font, replacing its internal encoding with
one you specify

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

The package now includes programs for working with multiple-master
fonts 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.
