NAME

       fontimage - produce a font thumbnail image

SYNOPSIS

       fontimage  [--help]  [--width  num]  [--height num] [--pixelsize num] [--text string] [--o
       outputfile] [--usage] [--version] fontfile

DESCRIPTION

       The program fontimage loads a font, which may be in any format fontforge(1) can read,  and
       then produces an image showing representative glyphs of the font.

OPTIONS

       --help Provide a description with a list of the available options.

       --width num
              Specifies  the  width  of the output image. If this is omitted the image will be as
              wide as necessary to display the text.

       --height num
              Specifies the height of the output image. If this is omitted the image will  be  as
              high as necessary to display the text.

       --pixelsize num
              Specifies  the  pixelsize  used to display the text. This argument may be specified
              multiple times and each refers to any --text lines that follow it.

       --text string
              Specifies a line of text to be displayed.  The  string  must  be  in  UTF-8.   This
              argument  may  be  specified multiple times to provide several lines of text. If no
              --text arguments are supplied fontimage will examine the font, looking for  various
              scripts it knows about, and will try to display something appropriate for each.

       -o  outfile
              Specifies  the  output filename for the image. The type of image will be determined
              by the file's extension. Currently  only  ".bmp"  and  ".png"  are  recognized.  If
              omitted fontimage will choose an output name based on the font's fontname field.

       --usage
              Display the usage description.

       --version
              Display the current version
