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	 font‐
       forge(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 necesary 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
