LCDF-typetools – A bundle of outline font manipulation tools

This bun­dle of tools com­prises:

  • Cfftot1, which trans­lates a Com­pact Font For­mat (CFF) font, or a PostScript-fla­vored OpenType font, into PostScript Type 1 for­mat. It cor­rectly han­dles sub­rou­tines and hints;
  • Mmafm and mmpfb, which cre­ate in­stances of mul­ti­ple-mas­ter fonts (mmafm and mmpfb were pre­vi­ously dis­tributed in their own pack­age, mmin­stance);
  • Otfinfo, which re­ports in­for­ma­tion about OpenType fonts, such as the fea­tures they sup­port and the con­tents of their ‘size’ op­ti­cal size fea­tures;
  • Otftotfm, which cre­ates font met­rics and en­cod­ings that cor­re­spond to a PostScript-fla­vored OpenType font. It will in­ter­pret glyph po­si­tion­ings, sub­sti­tu­tions, and lig­a­tures as far as it is able. You can say which OpenType fea­tures should be ac­ti­vated;
  • T1­dot­lessj, cre­ates a Type 1 font whose only char­ac­ter is a dot­less j match­ing the in­put font’s de­sign;
  • T1lint, which checks a Type 1 font for cor­rect­ness;
  • T1reen­code, which re­places a font’s in­ter­nal en­cod­ing with one you spec­ify; and
  • T1test­page, which cre­ates a PostScript proof for a Type 1 font. It is pre­lim­i­nary soft­ware.
