NAME

       t1reencode - re-encode a PostScript Type 1 font

SYNOPSIS

       t1reencode -e ENCODING [OPTIONS...]  font [outputfile]

DESCRIPTION

       T1reencode  changes  a PostScript Type 1 font's embedded encoding.  The re-encoded font is
       written to the standard output (but see the --output option).  If no input  font  file  is
       supplied, t1reencode reads a PFA or PFB font from the standard input.

OPTIONS

       --encoding=file, -e file
            Read  the  encoding  from  file,  which  must contain an encoding in dvips(1) format.
            Alternatively, file can be one of the following special  names,  in  which  case  the
            corresponding standard encoding is used.

            Name                   Source

            ISOLatin1Encoding      Adobe/ISO (synonym: ISO_8859_1_Encoding)

            ISOLatin4Encoding      ISO (synonym: ISO_8859_4_Encoding)

       --encoding-text=text, -E text
            Use  the  encoding  in  the  text  argument,  which  must  be formatted as a dvips(1)
            encoding.  One of --encoding and --encoding-text must be supplied.

       --name=name, -n name
            Set the output font's PostScript name to name.  The default is the  input  font  name
            followed by the encoding's name.

       --full-name=name, -N name
            Set  the  output font's FullName to name.  The default is the input FullName followed
            by the encoding's name.

       --output=file, -o file
            Send output to file instead of standard output.

       --pfb, -b
            Output a PFB font.  This is the default.

       --pfa, -a
            Output a PFA font.

       -h, --help
            Print usage information and exit.

       --version
            Print the version number and some short non-warranty information and exit.

RETURN VALUES

       T1reencode exits with value 0 if a re-encoded  font  was  successfully  generated,  and  1
       otherwise.

NOTES

       T1reencode  should  be used only in special situations.  It's generally much better to use
       PostScript commands to re-encode a font; for instance, executing the  PostScript  commands
       to  generate  two  differently-encoded  versions  of  a single font will take up much less
       memory than loading two t1reencoded fonts.

EXAMPLES

       This command re-encodes Frutiger Roman in the ISO Latin 1 encoding.   The  new  font  will
       have the PostScript name Frutiger-RomanISOLatin1Encoding.

           t1reencode -e ISOLatin1Encoding FrutiRom.pfb \
                   -o FrutiRomISOL1.pfb

       This  series  of  commands,  which  use  cfftot1(1)  and otftotfm(1) as well as t1reencode
       itself, generate a version of Warnock Pro Regular with old-style figures in the slots  for
       numbers  (because  of  otftotfm's -fonum option).  The new font will be called WarnockPro-
       RegularOsF.

           otftotfm -fonum WarnockPro-Regular.otf \
                   --output-encoding /tmp/osf.enc
           cfftot1 WarnockPro-Regular.otf | t1reencode -e /tmp/osf.enc \
                   -n WarnockPro-RegularOsF -N "Warnock Pro Regular OsF" \
                   -o WarnoProRegOsF.pfb
