xglyph [ fontfile... ]
This manual page documents briefly the xglyph program. This manual page was written for
the Debian GNU/Linux distribution because the original program does not have a manual
xglyph is a program which demonstrates the capabilities of the t1lib library. It allows
the user to view an arbitrary character or string rendered in the various ways pgossible
with the library. By default, it writes a log file named t1lib.log in the current direc-

xglyph is much more fully documented in the LaTeX documentation that accompanies the
upstream t1lib distribution. This documentation is installed in PostScript and source
formats with the t1lib-dev package in /usr/share/doc/t1lib-dev, and is also accessible
through the dwww system.
