Collection of simple Type 1 font manipulation programs

The t1utils tools allow you to convert between PFA (ASCII) and PFB (binary) formats; disassemble PFA or PFB files into human-readable form; and reassemble the human-readable files into PFA or PFB format files. You can also extract font resources from a Macintosh font file (ATM/Laserwriter), or create a Macintosh Type 1 font file from a PFA or PFB font.

There are currently six programs:

 t1ascii   Converts PFB files to PFA format.

 t1binary  Converts PFA files to PFB format.

 t1disasm  Disassembles a Type 1 font (PFA or PFB format) into a raw,
           human-readable text form for subsequent hand editing,
           tweaking, hint fixing, etcetera...

 t1asm     Assembles a Type 1 font into PFA or PFB format from
           the human-readable form produced by t1disasm.

 t1unmac   Extracts POST resources from a Macintosh Type 1 font file
           (ATM/Laserwriter) into PFA or PFB format for use outside
           the Macintosh environment.  The Macintosh file should be
           stored in MacBinary, AppleSingle, AppleDouble, or BinHex
           format, or as a raw resource fork.  Note that t1unmac does
           not have to run on a Macintosh, but makes Macintosh Type 1
           fonts available for use on Unix machines and PCs.

 t1mac     Creates a Macintosh Type 1 file from a PFA- or PFB-format
           Type 1 font. Writes the Macintosh file in MacBinary,
           AppleSingle, AppleDouble, or BinHex format, or as a raw
           resource fork.  WARNING: This tool will not suffice to
           allow you to use the new font on a Macintosh, as
           Macintoshes cannot read raw Type 1 fonts.  You will need
           to create a font suitcase containing bitmap fonts.  If you
           do not already have such a suitcase for the font, T1utils
           will not help you create one.

This version of the t1utils programs has been maintained by Eddie Kohler <> since version 1.5, based on the original code by I. Lee Hetherington. As such, it is a complete replacement for the t1utils Debian package, which is based on version 1.2 of I. Lee Hetherington's code.
