       t1asm - assemble PostScript Type 1 font

       t1asm [-a|-b] [-l length] [input [output]]

       t1asm  assembles  Adobe Type 1 font programs into either PFA (hexadeci-
       mal) or PFB (binary) formats from a human-readable form.  If  the  file
       output is not specified output goes to the standard output. If the file
       input is not specified input comes from the standard input.

       t1asm tokenizes the charstring data and performs eexec  and  charstring
       encryption  as  specified in the ``black book,'' Adobe Type 1 Font For-

       The input must have a line of the form
              /-|{string currentfile exch readstring pop}executeonly def
       which defines the  command,  in  this  case  `-|',  that  is  to  start
       charstring  data.  It is an error not to define such a command. Another
       common name for this command is `RD'.

       After the start of the Subrs array in the input, all  open  braces  `{'
       not in a comment begin a charstring. Such a charstring is terminated by
       the next non-comment close brace `}'. Within such  a  charstring,  only
       comments,  integers,  and  valid charstring commands are allowed. Valid
       charstring command names can be found in Adobe Type 1 Font  Format  and
       other  documents describing the newer Type 2 opcodes. The format within
       a charstring is unimportant as long as integers and commands are  sepa-
       rated  by  at  least  a one whitespace (space, tab, newline) character.
       Note that within charstrings, comments are discarded because they  can-
       not be encoded.

       --pfa, -a
            Output in PFA (ASCII) format.

       --pfb, -b
            Output in PFB (binary) format. This is the default.

       --block-length=num, -l num
            PFB only: Set the maximum output block length to num.  The default
            length is as large as memory allows.

       --line-length=num, -l num
            PFA only: Set the maximum length of encrypted lines in the  output
            to  num.   (These  are  the lines consisting wholly of hexadecimal
            digits.) The default is 64.

       Adobe Type 1 Font Format is available free from Adobe as  a  PDF  file.

       The  Type 2 Charstring Format, also available from Adobe as a PDF file,
       describes the newer Type 2 operators, which are also used in some  mul-
       tiple-master  Type  1 fonts like Adobe Jenson and Kepler.  http://part-
