NAME
t1ascii - convert PostScript Type 1 font from binary to ASCII SYNOPSIS
t1ascii [-l length] [input [output]] DESCRIPTION
t1ascii converts Adobe Type 1 font programs in PFB (binary) format to PFA (hexadecimal) format. 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. OPTIONS
--line-length=num, -l num Set the maximum length of encrypted lines in the output to num. (These are the lines consisting wholly of hexadecimal digits.) The default is 64. --warnings, -w Warn when the input font contains lines longer than 255 characters. Long lines don't strictly conform to Adobe's Document Structuring Conventions, and may cause problems with older software. SEE ALSO

NAME
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
