NAME¶ufond - convert UNIX font files into Macintosh format
SYNOPSIS¶ufond [-dfont] [-macbin] [-res] [-script name] fontfile...
DESCRIPTION¶The program ufond takes UNIX font files, wraps them in a Macintosh resource fork, creates a family for them, and then wraps that in a macbinary or binhex file.
The program reads one or more font files, specified at the end of the command line, using any of the following formats:
- Glyph Bitmap Distribution (.bdf)
- TrueType (.ttf)
- OpenType (.otf)
- POSTSCRIPT Binary format (.pfb)
All fonts with the same font family name will be placed in the same FOND. The program associates the name of a POSTSCRIPT font with a bitmap font, as well as handling bold, italic, and other variants properly.
The generated Macintosh files will be in one of three formats:
- MacBinary (default)
- dfont (data fork resource file format, used by MacOS X)
- bare resource fork (you have to know how to transform this into a real resource fork)
The program normally assumes that your fonts are in the roman script system. If this is not true you may specify a script directly. The program knows the names of a few scripts (greek, cyrillic, hebrew, arabic) which may be entered directly; otherwise you must know the Macintosh script number.
- Generate Macintosh files in dfont format.
- Generate Macintosh files in MacBinary format.
- Generate Macintosh files in resource format.
- -script name
- Specify the Macintosh script number.
