fondu - convert Macintosh font files to UNIX font format
fondu [-force] [-inquire] [-show] [-latin1] [-afm] [-trackps]
The program fondu reads a series of Macintosh font files, checks their
resource forks, and extracts all font related items into separate
Input files may be either macbinary files (.bin), binhex files (.hqx),
bare Macintosh resource forks, or data fork resource files (.dfont, as
used by MacOS X). A bare resource fork may be generated easily be
copying a file with a resource fork onto a diskette (or zip drive)
using DOS format. The Macintosh will create a folder called
resource.frk (invisible on the Macintosh itself), in which the resource
fork will reside as a bare file.
The command line should end with a list of one or more Macintosh font
files, macfile...; these files should be macbinary (.bin),
binhex(.hqx), or bare resource fork files.
-force Force overwriting of the original file.
Prompt for input before overwriting files. This overrides
-show Print out each file as it is created.
Recode any macintosh bitmap fonts (NFNTs) from the macintosh
roman encoding to latin1.
If the macfiles argument mentions a file containing a FOND, and
that FOND mentions external PostScript resource files, then
attempt to open those PostScript files as well as processing the
-afm For any macfile which contains a FOND and points to at least one
PostScript resource file create an Adobe Font Metrics (afm)
file. Fondu will merge width and bounding box information from
the PostScript files, and kerning data from the FOND.
