Very quick commandline wrapper around OpenTypeUtilities.cpp from Chromium, used
to make EOT (Embeddable Open Type) files from TTF (TrueType/OpenType Font)
files. This is the format TTLoadEmbeddedFont() accepts, which is what Internet
Explorer uses for css @font-face declarations.

I've only tested this on Linux.

EOT was documented by Microsoft here:

TTLoadEmbeddedFont is described here:


To build:

    $ make


    $ ./ttf2eot < input.ttf > output.eot
