NAME
       fonttosfnt - Wrap a bitmap font in a sfnt (OpenType) wrapper

SYNOPSIS
       fonttosfnt [ options ] -o file.otb [ -- ] [ font	] ...

DESCRIPTION
       Wrap  a	bitmap	font  or  a set	of bitmap fonts	in a sfnt (TrueType or
       OpenType) wrapper.  If no font is specified, a BDF font	is  read  from
       standard	input (stdin).

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
       The version of Fonttosfnt included in this X.Org	Foundation release was
