t1utils

The now defunct CurveSoft (Los Altos, CA) updated and debugged the t1utils package, a free package written in C, that allows various conversions between pfa, pfb and ascii versions of type 1 fonts. Extremely useful, even necessary, for anyone working with type 1 fonts. The original package was written by I. Lee Hetherington and fixed by Piet Tutelaers. We reproduce part of their "readme" file: t1disasm disassembles type-1 fonts in PFA or PFB format into a raw, human-readable text form. t1asm (re)assembles type-1 fonts in raw, human-readable form into either PFA or PFB format. t1ascii converts PFB files into PFA files. t1binary converts PFA files into PFB files. unpost extracts POST resources out of a Macintosh PostScript file (like a type-1 printer/ATM file) stored in MacBinary format or as a raw resource fork into PFA or PFB format. Note that this program does not need to run on a Macintosh. It allows Macintosh fonts to be used elsewhere. On July 30, Eric Hedman reported a bug: in t1asm.c 1.2, t1disasm.c 1.2 and t1binary.c 1.1 in t1utils 1.1a, please change static char line[LINESIZE] to static char line[LINESIZE+1] and recompile.
