       fntsample - PDF and PostScript font samples generator


       fntsample [ OPTIONS ] -f FONT-FILE -o OUTPUT-FILE
       fntsample -h


       fntsample  program  can be used to generate font samples that show Unicode coverage of the
       font and are similar in appearance to Unicode  charts.  Samples  can  be  saved  into  PDF
       (default) or PostScript file.


       fntsample supports the following options.

       --font-file, -f FONT-FILE
              Make samples of FONT-FILE.

       --font-index, -n IDX
              Font index for FONT-FILE specified using --font-file option.  Useful for files that
              contain multiple fonts, like TrueType Collections (.ttc).   By  default  font  with
              index 0 is used.

       --output-file, -o OUTPUT-FILE
              Write output to OUTPUT-FILE.

       --other-font-file, -d OTHER-FONT
              Compare FONT-FILE with OTHER-FONT.  Glyphs added to FONT-FILE will be highlighted.

       --other-index, -m IDX
              Font index for OTHER-FONT specified using --other-font-file option.

       --postscript-output, -s
              Use PostScript format for output instead of PDF.

       --svg, -g
              Use  SVG  format  for output.  The generated document contains one page.  Use range
              selection options to specify which.

       --print-outline, -l
              Print document outlines data to standard output.  This data  can  be  used  to  add
              outlines (aka bookmarks) to resulting PDF file with pdfoutline program.

       --include-range, -i RANGE
              Show characters in RANGE.

       --exclude-range, -x RANGE
              Do not show characters in RANGE.

       --style, -t "STYLE: VAL"
              Set STYLE to value VAL.  Run fntsample with option --help to see list of styles and
              default values.

       --help, -h
              Display help text and exit.

       Parameter RANGE for -i and -x can be given as one integer or a pair of integers  delimited
       by  minus  sign  (-).   Integers can be specified in decimal, hexadecimal (0x...) or octal
       (0...) format.  One integer of a pair can be missing  (-N  can  be  used  to  specify  all
       characters with codes less or equal to N, and N- for all characters with codes greather or
       equal to N).  Multiple -i and -x options can be used.


       Make PDF samples for font.ttf and write them to file samples.pdf:
              fntsample -f font.ttf -o samples.pdf

       Make PDF samples for font.ttf, compare it with oldfont.ttf and highlight new glyphs. Write
       output to file samples.pdf:
              fntsample -f font.ttf -d oldfont.ttf -o samples.pdf

       Make  PostScript  samples  for  font.ttf  and  write output to file  Show only
       glyphs for characters with codes less or equal to U+04FF but exclude U+0370-U+03FF:
              fntsample -f font.ttf -s -o -i -0x04FF -x 0x0370-0x03FF

       Make PDF samples for font.ttf and save output to file samples.pdf adding outlines to it:
              fntsample -f font.ttf -o temp.pdf -l > outlines.txt
              pdfoutline temp.pdf outlines.txt samples.pdf
