Are you a programmer and Looking for the perfect and nice programming font ?
If yes, Proggy Programming Fonts is one of the site that supply free programming fonts. The main fonts is Proggy programmer’s fonts (Proggy Clean, Proggy Square, Proggy Small, and Proggy Tiny), but there are others nice font such as Crisp, Speedy, CodingFontTobi1, and Opti. It is also the home of two other proportional bitmap fonts for use on web pages (Webby Caps and Webby Small). The good one is that Every font you will find there was created by a programmer and is free.
The proggy fonts are a set of fixed-width screen fonts that are designed for code listings. They are distributed in Microsoft’s .fon format, the truetype (ttf) format, as well as XWindows (Linux/BSD…) pcf format. The .fon format works well with MS Visual Studio, a command prompt, Photoshop, etc. Some editors do not recognize .fon fonts, in which case you should use the ttf version (12pt PC, 16pt Mac).
Each font only comes in one size that it looks good at. The ttf fonts should also be used at their intended point size as they are basically conversions of the pixel based bitmap versions. The fonts were optimized while coding in C or C++… for this reason, characters like the ‘*’ were placed vertically centered, as ‘*’ usually means dereference or multiply, but never ‘to the power of’ like in Fortran.
