CTAN Update: fontools

Date: April 2, 2019 8:30:43 PM CEST
Marc Penninga submitted an update to the fontools bundle. Version: 2019-04-01 License: gpl2 Summary description: Tools to simplify using fonts (especially TT/OTF ones) Announcement text:
Changes in autoinst: - use only standard NFSS codes for width and weight in fd files - create $TEXMFHOME when it doesn't exist (but only if $TEXMFLOCAL isn't user-writable, since that's still the default output tree) - in manual mode, put all generated files into a subdir "autoinst_output/", instead of all over the current dir - add 'auto' value to the -inferiors option; autoinst will use whatever inferior characters the font contains
The package’s Catalogue entry can be viewed at https://ctan.org/pkg/fontools The package’s files themselves can be inspected at http://mirror.ctan.org/fonts/utilities/fontools/

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.
