CTAN up­date: fontools

Date: Au­gust 21, 2005 3:24:02 PM CEST
On Mon, 15 Aug 2005 Marc Pen­ninga sub­mit­ted an up­date to the fontools pack­age. 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. CMAP2ENC - con­vert glyph in­dices in TrueType fonts with­out glyph names (such as Lino­type Palatino) to Adobe glyph names. FONT2AFM - cre­ate font met­rics; this is just a wrap­per script around tools such as pf2afm, ttf2afm, pfm2kpx and ot2kpx. OT2KPX - ex­tract all kern­ing pairs from an OpenType font. PFM2KPX - ex­tract all kern­ing pairs from buggy .pfm files (the ones where pf2afm com­plains ".not­def char­ac­ter oc­curred among kern pairs"). SHOWGLYPHS - cre­ate a pdf file that shows all glyphs in a font. Lo­ca­tion on CTAN: fonts/util­i­ties/fontools Sum­mary de­scrip­tion: Tools to sim­plify us­ing fonts (es­pe­cially TrueType/OpenType ones). Li­cense type: gpl An­nounce­ment text given by the pack­age's con­trib­u­tor:
- A few bug­fixes - Added sup­port files for a new en­cod­ing that may be use­ful for use with OpenType fonts, since it con­tains much more empty slots (for al­ter­nate glyphs and ad­di­tional lig­a­tures) than LY1.
Thanks for the up­date. For the CTAN Team Rainer Schöpf
