Projects / PalmFontConv


PalmFontConv is a collection of command-line utilities to manipulate Palm fonts in both v1 and v2 formats. Currently, there is a converter that converts between afnx, nfnt (low, high, or both densities), NFNT, and text editable formats, and another converter that converts Type 1/TrueType/BDF/PCF and other formats supported by FreeType2 into the text editable format, code for generating Plucker and PalmBible+ compatible anti-aliased fonts. There are also a bunch of GUI shells for generating font packages for Plucker, PalmBible+, Fonts4OS5, and FontSubst.
