Yes. They are documented somewhere (my collegue Petr van Blokland had a
printout of some VTT docs), but I have no clue where it would on line. It's
a pretty messy format (as simple as it is!), but it seems to work.

(ps/btw. I'm *extremely* happy with the FT scan converter: I use it in an
experimental prototype-oid of RoboFog-the-next-generation for the glyph
editor. I used to use ATM backdoor calls here, but A) ATM doesn't support
antialiasing via that mechanism, B) it sometimes crashes when you feed it
very complex or very large glyphs. (And C) it's commercial software...) The
FT2 scan converter is *so* much better for my purposes!)
