FONTTOSFNT(1)		    General Commands Manual		 FONTTOSFNT(1)

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 charac-
	      ter 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 Uni-
	      code 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 unde-
	      fined 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  in-
	      creases 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.

AUTHOR
