I don't know any systems handling Type42 font
except of Adobe products, 3rd party products
designed to be Adobe-compatible, or designed
to interoperate with Adobe products.

Your comment looks like as if there is a system
handling "Type42 font" but no care about Adobe
TechNote #5012. I'm afraid the system uses
PostScript-like syntax but TrueType-derived font
resource in it is NOT Type42. I guess what you
need is a PostScript syntax parser, not Type42
font driver. Please let me know the systems in your
mind, with concrete example. What I want to say
to you is not refusal, but appropriate solution
to your request.
