FONTTOSFNT(1)                                                    FONTTOSFNT(1)



NAME
       fonttosfnt - Wrap a bitmap font in a sfnt (TrueType) wrapper

SYNOPSIS
       fonttosfnt [ options ] -o file.ttf [ -- ] font...

DESCRIPTION
       Wrap a bitmap font or a set of bitmap fonts in a sfnt (TrueType or OpenType) wrapper.

OPTIONS
       -v     Be verbose.

       -c     Do not crop glyphs.  This usually increases file size, but may sometimes yield a modest decrease in file
              size for small character cell fonts (terminal fonts).

       -b     Write byte-aligned glyph data.  By default, unaligned data is written, which yields a smaller file size.

       -r     Do not reencode fonts.  By default, fonts are reencoded to Unicode whenever possible.

       -g n   Set the type of scalable glyphs that we write.  If n is 0, no scalable glyphs are written; this is legal
              but confuses most current software.  If n is 1, a single scalable glyph (the undefined glyph)  is  writ-
              ten;  this is recommended, but triggers a bug in current versions of FreeType.  If n is 2 (the default),
              a sufficiently high number of blank glyphs are written, which works with  FreeType  but  increases  file
              size.

       -m n   Set  the  type of scalable metrics that we write.  If n is 0, no scalable metrics are written, which may
              or may not be legal.  If n is 1, full metrics for a single glyph are written, and only left  sidebearing
              values  are written for the other glyphs.  If n is 2, scalable metrics for all glyphs are written, which
              increases file size and is not recommended.  The default is 1.

       --     End of options.

BUGS
       Some of the font-level values, notably sub- and superscript positions, are dummy values.
