Wrap a bitmap font or a set of bitmap fonts in a sfnt (TrueType or
Do not crop glyphs. This usually increases file size, but may
sometimes yield a modest decrease in file size for small character
cell fonts (terminal fonts).
Write byte-aligned glyph data. By default, bit-aligned data is
written, which yields a smaller file size.
Do not reencode fonts. By default, fonts are reencoded to Unicode
-g n ||
Set the type of scalable glyphs that we write. If
n is 0, no scalable glyphs are written; this is legal but confuses
most current software. If
n is 1, a single scalable glyph (the undefined glyph) is written; this
is recommended, but triggers a bug in current versions of
n is 2 (the default), a sufficiently high number of blank glyphs are
written, which works with
FreeType but increases file size.
-m n ||
Set the type of scalable metrics that we write. If
n is 0, no scalable metrics are written, which may or may not be legal.
n is 1, full metrics for a single glyph are written, and only left
sidebearing values are written for the other glyphs. If
n is 2, scalable metrics for all glyphs are written, which increases
file size and is not recommended. The default is 1.
End of options.
Some of the font-level values, notably sub- and superscript positions,
are dummy values.
