t1dotlessj — create a dotless-j PostScript Type 1 font


t1dotlessj [Options...] font [outputfile]


T1dotlessj creates a PostScript Type 1 font whose only character is a dotless 'j' matching the input font's design. It works simply by removing the dot from the input font's 'j'. The output font has three characters: '.notdef', 'space', and 'uni0237', where 'uni0237' is the dotless 'j'. The command fails if the input font already has a dotless 'j' character, or if there seems to be no dot to remove. T1dotlessj writes the created PFA or PFB font to the standard output (but see the --output option); if no input file is supplied, it reads a PFA or PFB font from the standard input.


--output=file, -o file
Send output to file instead of standard output.
--pfb, -b
Output a PFB font. This is the default.
--pfa, -a
Output a PFA font.
--name=name, -n name
Set the output font's PostScript name to name. The default is InputFontNameLCDFJ.
-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.

A dotless-j font was successfully generated.
