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.
