ttfwrapper converts a True Type font to PostScript font.

The program takes, as command line argument, the name of a True Type font file. The font data will be wrapped in Type42 format and written to the output.

ttfwrapper depends on the capabilities of the modules PostScript::Font and Font::TTF.


-output filename

Writes the output to the named file. If this option is omitted, output is sent to standard output.


Output the font metrics in AFM format.


Print a brief help message and exits.


Prints program identification.


More verbose information.
