t1reencode — re-encode a PostScript Type 1 font

Synopsis

t1reencode -e ENCODING [Options...] font [outputfile]

Description

T1reencode changes a PostScript Type 1 font's embedded encoding. The re-encoded font is written to the standard output (but see the --output option). If no input font file is supplied, t1reencode reads a PFA or PFB font from the standard input.

Options

--encoding=file, -e file

Read the encoding from file, which must contain an encoding in dvips(1) format. Alternatively, file can be one of the following special names, in which case the corresponding standard encoding is used.

-
--encoding-text=text, -E text
Use the encoding in the text argument, which must be formatted as a dvips(1) encoding. One of --encoding and --encoding-text must be supplied.
--name=name, -n name
Set the output font's PostScript name to name. The default is the input font name followed by the encoding's name.
--full-name=name, -N name
Set the output font's FullName to name. The default is the input FullName followed by the encoding's name.
--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.
-h, --help
Print usage information and exit.
--version
Print the version number and some short non-warranty information and exit.

Return Values

T1reencode exits with value 0 if a re-encoded font was successfully generated, and 1 otherwise.

Notes

T1reencode should be used only in special situations. It's generally much better to use PostScript commands to re-encode a font; for instance, executing the PostScript commands to generate two differently-encoded versions of a single font will take up much less memory than loading two t1reencoded fonts.

Examples

This command re-encodes Frutiger Roman in the ISO Latin 1 encoding. The new font will have the PostScript name Frutiger-RomanISOLatin1Encoding.

t1reencode -e ISOLatin1Encoding FrutiRom.pfb \
        -o FrutiRomISOL1.pfb

This series of commands, which use cfftot1(1) and otftotfm(1) as well as t1reencode itself, generate a version of Warnock Pro Regular with old-style figures in the slots for numbers (because of otftotfm's -fonum option). The new font will be called WarnockPro-RegularOsF.

otftotfm -fonum WarnockPro-Regular.otf \
        --output-encoding /tmp/osf.enc
cfftot1 WarnockPro-Regular.otf | t1reencode -e /tmp/osf.enc \
        -n WarnockPro-RegularOsF -N "Warnock Pro Regular OsF" \
        -o WarnoProRegOsF.pfb
