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.
