Checking glyph list of a font
I'm looking for a nice lib to check what glyphs a ttf font has. Preferably a php lib, but i guess that's stretching it a bit.
I'd hate to fully understand the ttf spec to check it myself.
nevermind, found a utility to extract the info i wanted.
For each character:
Construct string consisting of the graphical character in question and U+FFFD.
Print out a Microsoft Word document consisting of this string in this font.
Place the printout on a wooden table.
Take a photograph of the printout with a digital camera.
Use a genetic algorithm and/or neural net to compare how similar the two glyphs shown on the paper are.
If they match, there is no glyph for that character in that font.
