              Debug  file  that  specifies  the  classes stored in the font in terms of their GDL
              source and containing glyph ids in hex.

       dbg_cmap.txt
              Debug file giving Unicode to glyph mapping of all the glyphs in the font  and  vice
              versa.

       dbg_enginecode.txt
              Debug file containing the action code and constraint code associated with each pass
              and rule in a pass.

       dbg_fsm.txt
              Debug file that gives the  finite  state  machines  of  each  pass  and  the  rules
              referenced. For each pass, a mapping is given between glyph and column number.

       dbg_glyphattrs.txt
              Debug  file  containing all the glyph attributes and their names, along with values
