getinstrs - extracts TrueType instructions for one or more glyphs from a font.


getinstrs [options] fontfile glyphs...


getinstrs 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


-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
