       t1dotlessj - create a dotless-j PostScript Type 1 font


       t1dotlessj [OPTIONS...]  font [outputfile]


       T1dotlessj  creates  a PostScript Type 1 font whose only character is a
       dotless 'j' matching the input  font's  design.   It  works  simply  by
       removing  the dot from the input font's 'j'.  The output font has three
       characters: '.notdef', 'space', and 'uni0237', where 'uni0237'  is  the
       dotless 'j'.  The command fails if the input font already has a dotless
       'j' character, or if there seems to be no dot  to  remove.   T1dotlessj
       writes  the created PFA or PFB font to the standard output (but see the
       --output option); if no input file is supplied, it reads a PFA  or  PFB
       font from the standard input.


       --output=file, -o file
            Send output to file instead of standard output.

       --pfb, -b
            Output a PFB font.  This is the default.

       --pfa, -a
            Output a PFA font.

       --name=name, -n name
            Set  the  output  font's  PostScript name to name.  The default is

       -q, --quiet
            Do not generate any error messages.

       -h, --help
            Print usage information and exit.

       -v, --version
            Print the version number and some short  non-warranty  information
            and exit.


       T1dotlessj exits with one of the following values:

       0    A dotless-j font was successfully generated.

       1    The font already contained a dotless-j character.

       2    The font's "j" character had no dot to remove.

       3    The font had no "j" character.

       >3   An error occurred.
