Programs to manipulate OpenType and multiple-master fonts

This package contains four tools for working with OpenType fonts:

 cfftot1    allows you to translate Compact Font Format (CFF) or
            PostScript-flavored OpenType fonts into PostScript
            Type 1 font format

 otfinfo    reports information about OpenType fonts, such as the
            features they support and the contents of their ``size''
            optical size option

 otftotfm   allows you to create TeX font metrics and encodings for
            using PostScript-flavored OpenType fonts

 t1dotlessj creates a Type 1 font with a single character --
            the dotless j corresponding to the specified design

 t1lint     checks a Type 1 font for correctness (preliminary)

 t1testpage creates a PostScript test page for a specified
            font file (preliminary)

 t1rawafm   generates a "raw" (kernless and ligatureless) AFM file
            given a font file (PFB/PFA)

LCDF-TypeTools also includes the multiple-master font tools formerly distributed as mminstance. These tools allow you to use multiple-master fonts with programs that require single-master fonts (afm2tfm, ps2pk, fontinst, etc.). Both programs work fine with fonts that contain intermediate masters (e.g., Adobe Jenson MM and Adobe Kepler MM).

mmafm creates an AFM (Adobe font metric) file corresponding to

             a single instance of a multiple-master font.  It reads
             (and therefore requires) the AMFM and AFM files
             distributed with the font.

mmpfb creates a normal, single-master font program that looks

             like an instance of a multiple-master font.  It reads
             the multiple-master font program in PFA or PFB format.
