I'm using a Mac (Snow Leopard) and have been given a file in FFIL format which I need to convert to ttf or otf so that I can use it to generate @font-face fonts. I also have the font as postscript type 1, again without a file extension (get info shows that it is type1). There are online generators but these do not accept the files I have as they do not have file extensions (I am definitely displaying all file extensions on my mac - finder preference).

I would prefer an open source / free solution.
