albatross [options] glyphs...

Description

albatross is a command line tool for finding fonts that contain a given (Unicode) glyph. It relies on Fontconfig, a library for configuring and customizing font access.

Albatross takes a list of glyphs as input. Two formats are supported:

#1

The glyph itself, e.g, Ɵ (Eszett). Internally, the tool will convert it to the corresponding Unicode code point.

#2

The glyph as a Unicode code point in the hexadecimal notation, e.g, 0xDF. The 0x prefix is mandatory. Note that the tool takes the value as case insensitive, e.g, 0xDF is equal to 0xdf (or any case combination thereof).
