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 written; 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.
