-=- FONTOOLS -=-
This package provides tools to simplify using OpenType fonts with LaTeX.
Currently, this bundle contains the following programs:
AUTOINST - a wrapper script around Eddie Kohler's LCDF TypeTools.
Autoinst aims to automate the installation of OpenType fonts in LaTeX
by calling the LCDF TypeTools (with the correct options) for all fonts
you wish to install, and by generating the necessary .fd and .sty files.
AFM2AFM - re-encode .afm files
OT2KPX - extract kerning pairs from OpenType fonts.
The Fontools are written in Perl; any version since v5.10.1 should work.
Perl is usually installed on Linux and Unix systems;
for Windows, try ActivePerl (http://www.activestate.com)
or Strawberry Perl (http://strawberryperl.com).
Of course, Autoinst needs the LCDF TypeTools;
they should be installed in a directory on your PATH.
Automatically installing the fonts into a suitable TEXMF tree
(as Autoinst does by default) requires a TeX-installation that uses
the kpathsea library; with TeX distributions that implement their
own directory searching (such as MiKTeX), Autoinst will complain that
it cannot find the kpsewhich program and install all generated files
into subdirectories of the current directory.
If you use such a TeX distribution, either move these files to their
destinations by hand, or use the -target command line option
(please see the manual for more information).
The encoding files in the "share" directory should be installed
somewhere where otftotfm can find them.

fontools – Tools to simplify using fonts (especially TT/OTF ones)
This package provides a few tools to ease using fonts (especially
Truetype/Opentype ones) with Latex and fontinst:
afm2afm – reencode .afm files; designed to replace fontinst's
\reencodefont for big .afm files;
autoinst – simplify the use of the LCDF TypeTools by creating a
command file for otftotfm, plus .fd and .sty files; and
ot2kpx – extract all kerning pairs from an OpenType font.
