Coded Font Files

The coded font files (coded.fnt and icoded.fnt) map AFP coded fonts to their AFP character sets and code pages.

Coded Font Files

Coded Font File Name Description
coded.fnt Contains user-defined coded fonts. This file is optional, but if it exists must be placed in the \font subdirectory.
icoded.fnt Contains standard definitions for approximately 2500 coded fonts supplied by Ricoh.

If a coded.fnt file exists in the \font subdirectory, the AFP2PDF Plus Transform searches it first for the coded fonts used in an AFP file. Example of a coded.fnt File shows an example of the contents of the coded.fnt file.

Syntax rules

  • A question mark (?) can be used only as the wildcard character for the second character in the coded font name and the character set name. This allows all the character rotations of the coded fonts to be handled with one entry while searching.

    Note: A sequential search is performed for the coded font, and the first match (including the wildcard character) is used.
  • After the coded font name, the character set name must be listed first, followed by the code page name.

  • The character set and code page must be separated by a comma.
