Font Collector collects fonts in many PalmOS font formats and converts them to a number of other formats. This allows use of pre-OS5 fonts on OS5 units and vice versa, and many other things. It requires PalmOS 3.5 or later. Supported inputs include fonts hidden within applications, Fonts4OS5, FontSubst, FontHackV, Fonthack, iSilo, PalmBible+, Plucker, Font Bucket, and system fonts. Supported outputs include Fonts4OS5, FonFontSubst, FontHackV (these three only under OS5), PalmBible+, Plucker, iSilo, Mobipocket, and Fonthack. The freeware version works for PalmBible+, Plucker, and iSilo output. The shareware version works for all other outputs.
libtholoura is a text-image distortion library, which is useful for sites that want to ensure that a human (and not a bot) is viewing pages. It is optimized to produce images of strings distorted in a way that makes it impossible for an OCR to read, but humans can. The library takes a string (preferably ASCII) string and is able to dynamically produce PNG indexed images. The distortion filters are external plugins.
Univert is a Universal Unicode Converter, at least as universal as the Unicode implementation in Tcl 8.1 or later can manage on your computer. Univert will convert interchangably between the following formats: native Tcl unicode, hex bytes or words separated by spaces, decimal bytes or words separated by spaces, HTML entities, UTF-8/URL encoding, quoted printable with whatever the current encoding is, and C string with whatever the current encoding is.
QuesoGLC is a free implementation of the OpenGL Character Renderer. The OpenGL Character Renderer (GLC) is a state machine that provides OpenGL programs with character rendering services including scale and rotate text and draw text using lines, filled triangles, or bitmaps. QuesoGLC is based on the FreeType library, provides Unicode support, and is designed to be easily ported to any platform that supports both FreeType and the OpenGL API.
Net-Fu is a DHTML implementation of the classic GIMP NET-FU interface. It uses the GNU Image Manipulation Program and Xvfb to produce a wide variety of royalty-free custom and semi-custom graphics, logos, and clip art of various sorts. You simply select a style of logo from such choices as "neon", "chrome", and "crystal", specify parameters such as text string, typeface, size, and colors, and your logo is returned without further ado.
FONTpage is a utility for viewing, managing, and generating images of fonts. It can install and delete per-user fonts as well as (when run as root) system-wide fonts. It displays fonts, has a full alpha-numeric popup window, and allows you to change the font size and color, background color, font face, bold, and italics. It also has the ability to input the text to be displayed, which you can choose to save as a PNG file. It is handy to view fonts and styles quickly, or to make "logo" graphics. And naturally, it is a simple way to try out fonts without dipping into the command line. The source code as well as Slackware packages are available.
