Specifying TrueType and OpenType fonts

You have an input file (INFILE) that contains line data. You also have Unicode-enabled TrueType and OpenType fonts that are in user path libraries, such as /jdoe/fonts/truetype, or system path libraries, such as /u/fonts/truetype. TrueType and OpenType fonts are those fonts that are not defined by the Font Object Content Architecture (FOCA).

You want these TrueType and OpenType fonts to be used in processing the file: Arial Black, Century Gothic, and Times New Roman. The page definition (PAGTRUE) you are using references the fonts in Map Data Resource (MDR) structured fields. See Page Printer Formatting Aid: User's Guide, S550-0801 for information about creating page definitions that use TrueType and OpenType fonts.

You specify your input and output file names with the INPUTDD and OUTPUTDD parameters. You specify the page definition and form definition you want ACIF to use when it is processing the file with the PAGEDEF and FORMDEF parameters. You specify font path libraries with either the USERPATH parameter or the FONTPATH parameter.

To specify the fonts, enter these parameters for your operating system:

acif inputdd=INFILE outputdd=OUTFILE pagedef=PAGTRUE formdef=F1A10110 \
userpath=/jdoe/fonts/truetype:/jdoe/fonts/truetype/myfonts/ \
Note: The backslash (\) tells AIX to continue reading the command from the next line. In Windows, the backslash is not valid; therefore, the command parameters must be on one continuous line.You must use a colon (:) in AIX or a semicolon (;) in Windows to separate multiple paths.
