NAME

t1unmac - translate a Mac PostScript Type 1 font into PFA or PFB format  

SYNOPSIS

t1unmac [-a|-b] [-r] [input [output]]  

DESCRIPTION

t1unmac extracts POST resources from a Macintosh PostScript font file and creates a PFA (hexadecimal) or PFB (binary) font file. The file input should be in MacBinary I or II, AppleSingle, AppleDouble, or BinHex format, or it can be a raw resource fork. If the file is a raw resource fork, you need to give the `--raw' option; otherwise t1unmac should automatically figure out what kind of file you have. If the file output is not specified output goes to the standard output.  

OPTIONS

--pfa, -a
Output in PFA (ASCII) format.
--pfb, -b
Output in PFB (binary) format. This is the default.
--raw, -r
Indicates that the input is a raw resource fork.
--macbinary
Indicates that the input is in MacBinary I or II format.
--applesingle
Indicates that the input is in AppleSingle format.
--appledouble
Indicates that the input is in AppleDouble format.
--binhex
Indicates that the input is in BinHex 4.0 format.
--block-length=num, -l num
PFB only: Set the maximum output block length to num. The default length is as large as memory allows.
--line-length=num, -l num
PFA only: Set the maximum length of encrypted lines in the output to num. (These are the lines consisting wholly of hexadecimal digits.) The default is 64.
 

EXAMPLES
