t1mac - translate a PFA or PFB PostScript Type 1 font into Macintosh format SYNOPSIS
t1mac [--macbinary | --applesingle | --appledouble | --binhex | --raw] [--filename name] [input [output]] DESCRIPTION
t1mac reads a PFA (hexadecimal) or PFB (binary) PostScript Type 1 font file and generates an equivalent Macintosh Type 1 font file. The output file can be in MacBinary II, AppleSingle, AppleDouble, or BinHex format, or it can be a raw resource fork. The default is MacBinary II; use an option to choose a different format. If the output file is not specified output goes to the standard output. WARNING: The output of t1mac is not sufficient to use the font, since Macintoshes can't 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. t1mac cannot help you do this. OPTIONS
--raw, -r Indicates that output should be a raw resource fork. --macbinary Indicates that output should be in MacBinary I or II format. This is the default. --applesingle Indicates that output should be in AppleSingle format. --appledouble Indicates that output should be in AppleDouble format. --binhex Indicates that output should be in BinHex 4.0 format. --filename=name, -n name Sets the Macintosh filename of the output font to name. The default is to construct the filename from the font's name using estab- lished Macintosh conventions. This option is not useful when output is a raw resource fork. SEE ALSO

t1asm - assemble PostScript Type 1 font SYNOPSIS
t1asm [-a|-b] [-l length] [input [output]] DESCRIPTION
t1asm assembles Adobe Type 1 font programs into either PFA (hexadecimal) or PFB (binary) formats from a human-readable form. If the file output is not specified output goes to the standard output. If the file input is not specified input comes from the standard input. t1asm tokenizes the charstring data and performs eexec and charstring encryption as specified in the ``black book,'' Adobe Type 1 Font For- mat. The input must have a line of the form /-|{string currentfile exch readstring pop}executeonly def which defines the command, in this case `-|', that is to start charstring data. It is an error not to define such a command. Another common name for this command is `RD'. After the start of the Subrs array in the input, all open braces `{' not in a comment begin a charstring. Such a charstring is terminated by the next non-comment close brace `}'. Within such a charstring, only comments, integers, and valid charstring commands are allowed. Valid charstring command names can be found in Adobe Type 1 Font Format and other documents describing the newer Type 2 opcodes. The format within a charstring is unimportant as long as integers and commands are separated by at least a one whitespace (space, tab, newline) char- acter. Note that within charstrings, comments are discarded because they cannot be encoded. OPTIONS
--pfa, -a Output in PFA (ASCII) format. --pfb, -b Output in PFB (binary) format. This is the default. --block-length=num, -l num PFB only: Set the maximum output block length to num. The default length is as large as memory allows. --line-length=num, -l num PFA only: Set the maximum length of encrypted lines in the output to num. (These are the lines consisting wholly of hexadecimal dig- its.) The default is 64. EXAMPLES
% t1asm Utopia-Regular.raw > Utopia-Regular.pfb % t1asm -a Utopia-Regular.raw > Utopia-Regular.pfa SEE ALSO
t1disasm(1), t1ascii(1), t1binary(1), t1unmac(1), t1mac(1) Adobe Type 1 Font Format is available free from Adobe as a PDF file. The Type 2 Charstring Format, also available from Adobe as a PDF file, describes the newer Type 2 operators, which are also used in some multiple-master Type 1 fonts like Adobe Jenson and Kepler.
