ftview(1) simple glyph viewer


ftview [options] pt font


ftview displays all glyphs of a font, allowing changes of various rendering and hinting parameters interactively.
The point size for the given resolution. If resolution is 72dpi, this directly gives the ppem value (pixels per EM).
The font file(s) to display. For Type 1 font files, ftview also tries to attach the corresponding metrics file (with extension `.afm' or `.pfm').
