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 TeX 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.
