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  argu-
	      ment 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  omit-
	      ted fontimage will choose an output name based on the font's fontname field.

       --usage
	      Display the usage description.

       --version
	      Display the current version
