cfftot1 - convert PostScript font from CFF to Type 1

cfftot1 [-a] [input [output]]

Cfftot1 converts PostScript font programs in the Compact Font Format (CFF) into Type 1 font programs in PFB or PFA format, preserving all hints that can be represented in Type 1. The input file should be a raw CFF file or a PostScript-flavored OpenType font. 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.

Output font in ASCII PFA format.
Output font in binary PFB format. This is the default.
Output the CFF's component font named name. CFF files can contain more than one font, although few do. Use this option to select a particular font from a multi-font collection. By default cfftot1 chooses the collection's first font.
Write output font to file instead of the standard output.
Do not generate any error messages.
Print usage information and exit.
Print the version number and some short non-warranty information and exit.
