mensis - To or for, by with or from TrueType tables


mensis [-cmap maptype] [-depth pixeld] [-display str] [-help] [-keyboard ktype] [-nosplash
[-script file] [-sync [-usage] [-vc vclass] [-version] fontfile ...


The program mensis allows you to examine and modify some of the tables in a truetype or
opentype font.

If the argument list contains a font file name (or several), pfaedit opens a table view
window for each font displaying all the tables in that font In the absence of options or
arguments, the program opens a file-picker window, allowing you to browse your disk to
find a font file.

-cmap maptype
Employ the specified method to control 8-bit colormaps, where maptype assumes one
of these three values:

Attempt to allocate colors in the current (shared) colormap. The program
will likely not find everything it requires.

copy Allocate what can be allocated, then copy the current colormap; it can thus
make use of cells other programs are using.

Create a new colormap and fill it with the required colors.

-depth pixeld
Attempt to employ a visual that matches the specified pixel depth, pixeld.

-display str
Employ the X display specified by the string str (for example: localhost:0).

-help Display the usage description and start a web client displaying the online

-keyboard ktype
Alter the displayed menus to employ modifier keys appropriate to the specified
keyboard type, where ktype assumes one of the following four values:

ibm IBM PC type keyboard.

mac Apple Macintosh keyboard.

sun Sun workstation keyboard.

ppc Macintosh keyboard, but on a system running SuSe linux (the mappings differ
from those used under MacOS X).

Suppress display of the splash screen.

-script file
Execute the script named file. Does not open the X display. This must be the
first argument passed to mensis. Any other arguments are handled by the scriptfile
itself. Any other command line arguments will be passed to the script. The
program contains a command interpreter which allows access to most but not all of
its interactive features. If a scriptfile is executable, and if its first line
contains the string "mensis", then the argument -script may be omitted. This means
that mensis can be used as an interpreter.

-sync Make X synchronous. Used primarily for debugging, this option slows X down.

-usage Display the usage description.

-vc vclass
Attempt to use a visual that matches the class, vclass, specified as either the
name of a visual class or an integer enumerating a visual class.

Display the current version (a six digit string containing the date stamp of the
source files).


If any of the following environment variables exist, they are used:

Specifies the name of a browser program for examining documentation.

Turns on verbose mode in scripting. Each statement is printed as it is executed.
