LCDF-typetools – A bundle of outline font manipulation tools

This bundle of tools comprises:

  • Cfftot1, which translates a Compact Font Format (CFF) font, or a PostScript-flavored OpenType font, into PostScript Type 1 format. It correctly handles subroutines and hints;
  • Mmafm and mmpfb, which create instances of multiple-master fonts (mmafm and mmpfb were previously distributed in their own package, mminstance);
  • Otfinfo, which reports information about OpenType fonts, such as the features they support and the contents of their ‘size’ optical size features;
  • Otftotfm, which creates font metrics and encodings that correspond to a PostScript-flavored OpenType font. It will interpret glyph positionings, substitutions, and ligatures as far as it is able. You can say which OpenType features should be activated;
  • T1dotlessj, creates a Type 1 font whose only character is a dotless j matching the input font’s design;
  • T1lint, which checks a Type 1 font for correctness;
  • T1reencode, which replaces a font’s internal encoding with one you specify; and
  • T1testpage, which creates a PostScript proof for a Type 1 font. It is preliminary software.
