otfinfo — report information about OpenType fonts


otfinfo [-sfzpvag] [FILE...]


Otfinfo reports information about the named OpenType font FILEs (or standard input, if no FILEs are given). Results are printed to standard output. Each line is prefaced with the relevant FILE if more than one FILE was supplied.


With long options, you need type only as many characters as will make the option unique.
