     fonttosfnt - Wrap a bitmap font in a sfnt (TrueType) wrapper


     fonttosfnt [ options ] -o file.ttf [ -- ] font...


     Wrap a bitmap font or a set of bitmap fonts in a sfnt (True-
     Type or OpenType) wrapper.


     -v   Be verbose.

     -c   Do not crop glyphs.  This usually increases file size,
          but may sometimes yield a modest decrease in file size
          for small character cell fonts (terminal fonts).

     -b   Write byte-aligned glyph data.  By default, bit-aligned
          data is written, which yields a smaller file size.

     -r   Do not reencode fonts.  By default, fonts are reencoded
          to Unicode whenever possible.

     -g n Set the type of scalable glyphs that we write.  If n is
          0, no scalable glyphs are written; this is legal but
          confuses most current software.  If n is 1, a single
          scalable glyph (the undefined glyph) is written; this
          is recommended, but triggers a bug in current versions
          of FreeType. If n is 2 (the default), a sufficiently
          high number of blank glyphs are written, which works
          with FreeType but increases file size.

     -m n Set the type of scalable metrics that we write.  If n
          is 0, no scalable metrics are written, which may or may
          not be legal. If n is 1, full metrics for a single
          glyph are written, and only left sidebearing values are
          written for the other glyphs.  If n is 2, scalable
          metrics for all glyphs are written, which increases
          file size and is not recommended.  The default is 1.

     --   End of options.


     Some of the font-level values, notably sub- and superscript
     positions, are dummy values.
