NAME
fontimage - produce a font thumbnail image SYNOPSIS
fontimage [--help] [--width num] [--height num] [--pixelsize num] [--text string] [--o outputfile] [--usage] [--version] fontfile DESCRIPTION
The program fontimage loads a font, which may be in any format fontforge(1) can read, and then produces an image showing representative glyphs of the font. OPTIONS
--help Provide a description with a list of the available options. --width num Specifies the width of the output image. If this is omitted the image will be as wide as necessary to display the text. --height num Specifies the height of the output image. If this is omitted the image will be as high as necessary to display the text. --pixelsize num Specifies the pixelsize used to display the text. This argument may be specified multiple times and each refers to any --text lines that follow it. --text string Specifies a line of text to be displayed. The string must be in UTF-8. This argument may be specified multiple times to provide several lines of text. If no --text arguments are supplied fontimage will examine the font, looking for various scripts it knows about, and will try to display something appropriate for each. -o outfile Specifies the output filename for the image. The type of image will be determined by the file's extension. Currently only ".bmp" and ".png" are recognized. If omitted fontimage will choose an output name based on the font's fontname field. --usage Display the usage description. --version Display the current version SEE ALSO

NAME
sfddiff - compare two font files SYNOPSIS
sfddiff [--help] [--ignorehints] [--ignorenames] [--ignoregpos] [--ignoregsub] [--ignorebitmaps] [--exact] [--warn] [--merge outfile] [--usage] [--version] fontfile1 fontfile2 DESCRIPTION
The program sfddiff compares two font files, which may be in any format fontforge(1) can read. It will notice the following differences: 1) Characters are present in one font but not in the other. 2) Characters are present in both fonts but have different sets of outlines or references. The outlines may be compared so that only exact matches are accepted, or so that a fuzzier match is used. Similarly references may need to match exactly, or may be matched after an unlink. This fuzzy comparison is useful when comparing truetype and postscript fonts, or when comparing a font with references to one with- out. 3) The postscript hints or truetype instructions are different. 4) The font names (the truetype `name' table) differ. 5) The kerning (and other `gpos' information) differs. 6) The ligatures (and other `gsub' information) differ. 7) Any bitmap strikes present in one font but not in the other. 8) Any bitmap characters present in one strike of one font but in the equivalent strike of the other. 9) Any bitmap characters which differ. OPTIONS
--help Provide a description with a list of the available options. --ignorehints Suppress the reporting of hint/instruction differences. --ignoregpos Suppress the reporting of kerning (and other `gpos') differences. --ignoregsub Suppress the reporting of ligature (and other `gsub') differences. --ignorenames Suppress the reporting of name string differences. --ignorebitmaps Suppress the reporting of bitmap differences. --exact Require outlines to match exactly. --warn Warn if the outlines/references are slightly different. --merge outfile Store a merged version of the two fonts into the specified output file. The merged data will be based on sfdfile1, as well as any characters present in sfdfile2 but not in sfdfile1 will be added, and the outlines of sfdfile2 will be placed in the background. Finally, for any characters with different outlines or references the background of the character will contain the outlines from sfdfile2 (references will be unlinked into outlines and those outlines also will be added). --usage Display the usage description. --version Display the current version.
