> This software is still probably alpha quality and mostly designed
> specifically for Adobe font conventions. It currently has experimental
> support for generating swashed versions of a font and fonts consisting

> encodings, but it is far from complete. The tool has been mostly
> tested with the T1 Cork encoding. For more information about using
> the tool, invoke it with the --help option.
