xgfmerge: merges two Xgridfit program files
- merges two Xgridfit program files
merges two or more Xgridfit program files, where file-a is a program
generated automatically from an existing font using TTX and
ttx2xgf, and file-b and any other files in the list contain
other programming for the font.
outputs the merged programming to stdout.
To capture the output in a file, use this syntax:
$xgfmerge -o merged-file.xgf file-a.xgf file-b.xgf
If xmlstarlet is found in the system, xgfmerge uses it to
format the output. Otherwise, the output file will be messy
Look for a <default type="compile-globals"/> element in each file
after the first in the list. If value="no" then ignore all
<default>, <control-value>, <function>, <macro> and <pre-program>
elements in the file.
Display a help message.
Merge <no-compile> elements from all files. <glyph> elements
with duplicate "ps-name" attributes are ignored.
- -o file
The file to write the output to. If this option is not used,
output is written to stdout.
When a <pre-program> element in a file other than file-a is
available, use it instead of the one from file-a. If this option
is not present, xgfmerge merges the programming in the
<pre-program> of file-a with that in the <pre-program>
of whichever file is being merged at the moment.
The result is unlikely to be good
if a single run of xgfmerge merges the contents of more than two
Sort <glyph> elements in the output file into alphabetical order.
Verbose output: xgfmerge tells you what it is doing at each
Resolve XIncludes before merging all files in the list except for
file-a. Any XIncludes
from file-a.xgf are stripped out of the files before
this operation is performed. If XInclude is used to bring
global elements (<control-value>, <function>, etc.) into these
files, it is probably a good idea to use the -c option as well.
An XSLT script that performs the merge.
An XSLT script that strips out unwanted XIncludes.
An XSLT script that sorts glyph elements in a file.
Does some formatting of the output.
