the problem is my lack of study. I use the oXygen Editor to develop my own
framework, this is where I have to use a shell script, but I did not find
out where to write the -ttcname part:

****shell script*****
export CMD='java -cp lib/fop.jar:lib/avalon-framework-
org.apache.fop.fonts.apps.TTFReader -ttcname "HGPMinchoB"'
export FONT=/Library/Fonts/HGRMB.TTC
$CMD $FONT HGPMinchoB.xml

****terminal reaction*****
mbp:oXygen ms$ sh
TTF Reader for Apache FOP 0.95

Parsing font...
Reading /Library/Fonts/HGRMB.TTC...
This is a TrueType collection file with 3 fonts
Containing the following fonts:
Error while building XML font metrics file. Name does not exist in the TrueType collection:

mbp:oXygen ms$

The oXygen staff helps me wherever I cannot find a solution, so I asked them
where to put the -ttcname part, but expect the answer not before monday.

I really have to apologize, I am an archaeologist, and there is a lot to
learn, sometimes I do not find the right starting point. So I will check the
links you sent me:
