getinstrs man page

getinstrs — extracts TrueType instructions for one or more glyphs from a font.

Synopsis

getinstrs [options] fontfile glyphs...

Description

getinstrs calls the FontForge Python extension to extract instructions from a TrueType font (either .ttf or .sfd) and print them to stdout (redirect to capture them in a file). By default the instructions are printed as an Xgridfit glyph program. Use the -r, --raw command-line option to print them as "raw" instructions instead, or use -x, --xgridfit to enclose the glyph program(s) in an <xgridfit> element, making a complete, valid Xgridfit program.

Options

-h, --help
Display a help message and exit.
-r, --raw
Print "raw" instructions instead of Xgridfit glyph programs.
-x, --xgridfit
Print XML declaration and <xgridfit> element, making a complete, valid Xgridfit program.
