NAME

       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.
