NAME
       ttftotype42 - create PostScript Type 42 wrapper of TrueType font

SYNOPSIS
       ttftotype42 [input [output]]

DESCRIPTION
       Ttftotype42  converts  TrueType or TrueType-flavored OpenType font pro-
       grams into PostScript Type 42 format, which is a	wrapper	for the	 True-
       Type  outlines.	This conversion	preserves all outlines and hint	infor-
       mation from the original	TrueType font. The Type	42 wrapper uses	 glyph
       names identical to those	expected by pdflatex(1)	or otftotfm(1),	so en-
       coding files suitable for TrueType fonts	and pdflatex  will  also  work
       for  the	 Type 42 fonts and dvips(1).  If the file output is not	speci-
       fied output goes	to the standard	output.	 If  the  file	input  is  not
       specified input comes from the standard input.

OPTIONS
       -o file,	--output file
	    Write output font to file instead of the standard output.

       -q, --quiet
	    Do not generate any	error messages.

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

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