As was so with many people, years ago I used a computer running MSDOS.
On it I had a program Fontedit which could edit softfonts for a Hewlett

was *.crl. There is one font I have (although I have not used the
program in years) which I would like to edit and then convert the .crl
font to a TrueType Font, .ttf. I searched on Dogpile and Google with
the search string "convert crl ttf" but came up with nothing. Does

Many thanks to RSD99 for directing me to the excellent AMS math fonts.
However, I now have another problem. I'm developing an application that
makes use of these fonts in MS Visual Studio.NET, which supports *only* true
type fonts. I've spent the past several hours scouring the internet for
some way to convert these to the needed format, but have been unable to find
a free solution (student project, y'know). Anyway, if anybody knows of a
decent program which will convert Type1 to TTF, I would love to hear about

The only outline font editor for Linux I know about is PfaEdit

whether or not PfaEdit really qualifies as "good" or not. It's been more

Give PFAEdit a try. It seems to have most (if not all) the function that
other software has.

I need to convert some Microsoft TTF TrueType fonts to bitmapped
fonts, to generate several fonts of differing size.
I had some success with utility ttf2bdf from Freetype1 library. (and
subsequent use of bdftopcf).
However, ttf2bdf is buggy and cannot convert, say, COUR.ttf (Corier
New font). It chokes on it and produces a file without any characters

Freetype2 seems to only be a library.

The answer is yes (using some pricey software programs), but prompts

All PC platforms can use T1 fonts. Windows 3.1 and 9x/ME require the use
