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 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
