Intend to package t1utils



Hi,

if there are no objetions, i'll package t1utils, a collection of programs
that manipulte type-1 fonts. The most interesting feature is the
possibility to translate PFB (and PFA) files in a human readable form,
that can be modified and compiled back to the PFB format. 

The t1utils can be found at 
  YOUR_PREFERRED_CTAN/fonts/utilities/t1utils/
where YOUR_PREFERRED_CTAN is any Comprehensive TeX Archive Network
(e.g., ftp://sunsite.doc.ic.ac.uk/packages/tex/uk-tex, or
ftp://ftp.dante.de/tex-archive).

Thanks,

Marco 

====================== t1utils/README ======================

t1utils version 1.1a

This is a collection of type-1 font manipulation programs.

t1disasm disassembles type-1 fonts in PFA or PFB format into a raw,
human-readable text form.

t1asm (re)assembles type-1 fonts in raw, human-readable form into
either PFA or PFB format.

t1ascii converts PFB files into PFA files.

t1binary converts PFA files into PFB files.

unpost extracts POST resources out of a Macintosh PostScript file
(like a type-1 printer/ATM file) stored in MacBinary format or as a
raw resource fork into PFA or PFB format.  Note that this program does
not need to run on a Macintosh.  It allows Macintosh fonts to be used
elsewhere.

Currently, these programs have been successfully compiled on a Sun 4
using acc and gcc.  Note that these programs are ANSI C.  Porting to
DOS machines would likely be trivial, but that hasn't been done yet
(do you want to?).
