The documentation and API reference is automatically generated from the interfaces. It can be consulted online or via odig doc otfm.

Sample programs

Sample programs are located in the test directory of the distribution. They can be built with:

topkg build --tests true 
  • test.byte tests the library, nothing should fail.
  • otftrip.native, among other things, reads an OpenType file and prints a human readable representation on stdout. Invoke with -help for more information.
