GETINSTRS(1) General Commands Manual GETINSTRS(1)
NAMEgetinstrs - extracts TrueType instructions for one or more glyphs from a font.
SYNOPSISgetinstrs [options] fontfile glyphs...
DESCRIPTIONgetinstrs 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.
