t1rawafm - Man Page

produce raw AFM metrics from a PostScript Type 1 font


t1rawafm [Options...] [font [outputfile]]


T1rawafm generates an AFM file with the information available in a PostScript Type 1 font.  The AFM file will lack kerns, ligature information, and composite characters, but is otherwise usable.  The AFM file is written to the standard output (but see the --output option).  If no input font file is supplied, t1rawafm reads a PFA or PFB font from the standard input.


--output=file, -o file

Send output to file instead of standard output.

-h,  --help

Print usage information and exit.


Print the version number and some short non-warranty information and exit.

Return Values

T1rawafm exits with value 0 if an AFM metrics file was successfully generated, and 1 otherwise.
