Font::TTF::Scripts - Smart font script supporting modules and scripts for TTF/OTF


This module contains a number of useful command-line programs for hacking with TTF/OTF files. Highlights include:

  fret       - produces PDF report of an uninstalled font including all glyphs
  make_gdl   - build GDL source code Graphite fonts
  make_fea   - build Feature source code for OpenType fonts
  hackos2    - manipulates the OS/2 table of a font
  ttf2woff   - create WOFF version of a font
  ttfbuilder - builds a font from another font, attaching glyphs, subsetting, etc.
  ttfname    - renames a font
  ttfsubset  - removes parts of a font in order to produce a working, smaller, font.
  ttftable   - export/import/list tables in a font
  volt2ttf   - command-line VOLT compiler

When executed without parameters, most commands will emit usage message.
