t1mac — translate a PFA or PFB PostScript Type 1 font into Macintosh format

Synopsis

t1mac [--macbinary | --applesingle | --appledouble | --binhex | --raw] [--filename name] [input [output]]

Description

t1mac reads a PFA (hexadecimal) or PFB (binary) PostScript Type 1 font file and generates an equivalent Macintosh Type 1 font file. The output file can be in MacBinary II, AppleSingle, AppleDouble, or BinHex format, or it can be a raw resource fork. The default is MacBinary II; use an option to choose a different format. If the output file is not specified output goes to the standard output.

WARNING: The output of t1mac is not sufficient to use the font, since Macintoshes can't read raw Type 1 fonts. You will need to create a font suitcase containing bitmap fonts if you do not have such a suitcase for the font already. t1mac cannot help you do this.

Options

--raw, -r
Indicates that output should be a raw resource fork.
--macbinary
Indicates that output should be in MacBinary I or II format. This is the default.
--applesingle
Indicates that output should be in AppleSingle format.
--appledouble
Indicates that output should be in AppleDouble format.
--binhex
Indicates that output should be in BinHex 4.0 format.
--filename=name, -n name
Sets the Macintosh filename of the output font to name. The default is to construct the filename from the font's name using established Macintosh conventions. This option is not useful when output is a raw resource fork.
