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 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.
