ttf2pk uses a small configuration file called ttf2pk.cfg; in each line it contains a keyword with its value, separated by whitespace. Comment lines can start with any of the following characters: *, #, ;, and %. Leading whitespace is ignored.
Currently, only one keyword, map, is recognized in this file; it takes a map file name as a parameter. If no extension is given to the map file name, .map is appended. No whitespace is allowed in the map file name. The map keyword can be given more than once to specify multiple map files; if the map file name is prepended by a plus sign, it is added to the list of map files to be used. Example:
This makes ttf2pk to first read foo.map, then bar.map.
If the configuration file is not found, ttf2pk tries to use ttfonts.map instead.
Parameters specified to ttf2tfm are preserved for ttf2pk in map files ttf2tfm writes out to standard output, as the last line, a proper entry for a map file.
As an example, a call to
ttf2tfm arial -p T1.enc -s 0.25 -P 1 -E 0 arials
will produce the following line:
arials arial Slant=0.25 Pid=1 Eid=0 Encoding=T1.enc
Here a table listing the various ttf2tfm parameters and the corresponding entries in a map file:
Single replacement glyph names given to ttf2tfm with -r old-glyphname new-glyphname are directly specified with old-glyphname=new-glyphname. They will be ignored if in subfont mode or if no encoding file is given.
One additional parameter in a map file is unique to ttf2pk: Hinting, which can take the values On or Off. Some fonts (e.g. the CJK part of cyberbit.ttf) are rendered incorrectly if hinting is activated. Default is On (you can also use Yes, No, 1, and 0).
For a description of subfonts (i.e., entries of the form <namestem> @ <sfd-filename> @) please refer to ttf2tfm(1).
The format of a map file is simple. Each line defines a font; first comes the T\h-0.1667m\v0.20vE\v-0.20v\h-0.125mX font name, then its TrueType font file name, followed by the parameters in any order. Case is significant (even for parameter names); the parameters are separated from its values by an equal sign, with whitespace possibly surrounding it. ttf2pk reads in all map files line by line in the order given in the configuration file, continuing until the T\h-0.1667m\v0.20vE\v-0.20v\h-0.125mX font specified on the command line is found, otherwise the programs exits with error code 2. Thus you can use any character invalid in a T\h-0.1667m\v0.20vE\v-0.20v\h-0.125mX font name to start a comment line.
You can use #146; as the final character of a line to indicate that the input is continued on the next line. The backslash and the following newline character will be removed.
ttf2pk will abort if it cant find or read the T\h-0.1667m\v0.20vE\v-0.20v\h-0.125mX font metrics file of the given T\h-0.1667m\v0.20vE\v-0.20v\h-0.125mX font name.
If the call was successful, 0 will be returned. In case of error, the return value is 1. Finally, if the font cant be found in the map files, 2 is returned. This simplifies the inclusion of ttf2pk into scripts like mktexpk for automatic font generation.
ttf2pk is part of the FreeType 1 package, a high quality TrueType rendering library.
