ttx2xgf man page

ttx2xgf ā€” extracts instructions from a TTX file and creates an Xgridfit program.


ttx2xgf [options] infile[.ttx] [outfile]


ttx2xgf is a utility that extracts instructions (hints) and other information relating to instructions from a TTX file (an XML representation of a TrueType font) and creates a new Xgridfit program.

If infile lacks the .ttx extension, it is assumed. If outfile is not given, output is written to infile.xgf.



Path to a configuration file (relative paths are permitted). If this is not given, ttx2xgf will look first for a file config.xml in the current directory, next in the user's Xgridfit configuration directory, and finally in the Xgridfit base directory.


Display diagnostic messages (for debugging).

-E, --elapsed-time

Time the running of this program and display the result.


Select a preferred XSLT processsor; ttx2xgf will use this one if possible.
