       ttftotype42 - create PostScript Type 42 wrapper of TrueType font


       ttftotype42 [input [output]]


       Ttftotype42  converts  TrueType or TrueType-flavored OpenType font pro-
       grams into PostScript Type 42 format, which is a wrapper for the  True-
       Type  outlines.  This conversion preserves all outlines and hint infor-
       mation from the original TrueType font. The Type 42 wrapper uses  glyph
       names  identical  to  those  expected by pdflatex(1) or otftotfm(1), so
       encoding files suitable for TrueType fonts and pdflatex will also  work
       for  the  Type 42 fonts and dvips(1).  If the file output is not speci-
       fied output goes to the standard output.  If  the  file  input  is  not
       specified input comes from the standard input.


       -o file, --output file
            Write output font to file instead of the standard output.

       -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.
