t1utils is a collection of simple type-1 font manipulation programs.
There are currently six programs:
t1ascii converts PFB files to PFA format.
t1binary converts PFA files to PFB format.
t1disasm disassembles a type-1 font (PFA or PFB format) into a
raw, human-readable text form for subsequent hand
editing, tweaking, hint fixing, etc...
t1asm assembles type-1 font into PFA or PFB format from
human-readable form produced by t1disasm.
t1unmac extracts POST resources from a Macintosh type-1 file
(ATM/Laserwriter) into PFA or PFB format for use outside
the Macintosh environment. The Macintosh file should be
stored in MacBinary, AppleSingle, AppleDouble, or BinHex
format, or as a raw resource fork. Note that t1unmac does
not have to run on a Macintosh, but makes Macintosh type-1
fonts available to Unix machines and PCs.
t1mac creates a Macintosh Type 1 file from a PFA or PFB-format
Type 1 font. Writes the Macintosh file in MacBinary,
AppleSingle, AppleDouble, or BinHex format, or as a raw
resource fork. WARNING: This will not suffice to use the
new font on a Macintosh, as Macintoshes cannot read raw
Type 1 fonts. You will need to create a font suitcase
containing bitmap fonts if you do not have such a suitcase
for the font already. T1utils cannot help you do this.
You need an ANSI C compiler, such as gcc.
Just type `./configure', then `make'. `make install' will build and
install the utilities and their manual pages.
./configure' accepts the usual options. See `INSTALL' for more
details. The most commonly used option is `--prefix', which can be used
to install the utilities in a place other than /usr/local.
