The perfect monospaced bitmap programming fonts, TTF version
The proggy programmer’s fonts Proggy Clean, Proggy Square, Proggy Small, and Proggy Tiny are a set of fixed-width screen fonts that are designed for code listings. Each font only comes in one size that it looks good at. 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. The s are centered horizontally as the author’s coding style aligns braces vertically, the zero looks different from the capital oh, and there is never any confusion between ells, ones, and eyes. Additionally, the arithmetic operators + - * < > are all axis aligned.
