t1dotlessj - 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.
T1dotlessj exits with one of the following values:
- --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
- -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
