fonttosfnt – Wrap a bitmap font in a sfnt (TrueType) wrapper


fonttosfnt [ options ] -o file.ttf [ — ] font…


Wrap a bitmap font or a set of bitmap fonts in a sfnt (TrueType or
OpenType) wrapper.


-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
increases file size and is not recommended. The default is 1.

Some of the font-level values, notably sub- and superscript positions,
are dummy values.
