fontools – Tools to simplify using fonts (especially TT/OTF ones)

This package provides tools to simplify using OpenType fonts with .

By far the most important program in this bundle is autoinst:

  • autoinst – a wrapper script around Eddie Kohler’s LCDF TypeTools. Autoinst aims to automate the installation of OpenType fonts in by calling the LCDF TypeTools (with the correct options) for all fonts you wish to install, and generating the necessary .fd and .sty files.

In addition, this bundle contains a few other, less important utilities:

  • afm2afm – re-encode .afm files,
  • ot2kpx – extract kerning pairs from OpenType fonts,
  • splitttc – split an OpenType Collection file (ttc or otc) into individual fonts.
