NAME

grcompiler - Compile GDL into a TrueType Font

SYNOPSIS


grcompiler
[-c] [-d] [-D] [-g] [-n number] [-v number] [-w number] [-wall] [-q] gdl-file font-file [output-file] [output-fontname]

DESCRIPTION

Grcompiler compiles a Graphite Description Language description of the smarts for a font along with a TrueType Font to create a graphite font with graphite tables in it.
-c
Enable compression of Graphite tables. This forces a version 5.0 Silf and version 3.0 Glat.
-d
Generate XML debugger file.
-D
Generate all debugger files.
-g
Permit and ignore invalid glyph definitions.
-n number
Set name table start location.
-q
Quiet mode (no messages except on error).
-v number
Set Silf table version number.
-w number
Ignore warning with the given number. This option may be repeated.
-wall
Display all warnings.

ENVIRONMENT

grcompiler makes use of the following environment variables
GDLPP
Specifies the command to execute to run the GDL preprocessor

FILES

gdlerr.txt
Warnings and errors are output to this file.
dbg_classes.txt
Debug file that specifies the classes stored in the font in terms of their GDL source and containing glyph ids in hex.
dbg_cmap.txt
Debug file giving Unicode to glyph mapping of all the glyphs in the font and vice versa.
dbg_enginecode.txt
Debug file containing the action code and constraint code associated with each pass and rule in a pass.
dbg_fsm.txt
Debug file that gives the finite state machines of each pass and the rules referenced. For each pass, a mapping is given between glyph and column number.
dbg_glyphattrs.txt
Debug file containing all the glyph attributes and their names, along with values specified for each glyph.
dbg_parsetree.txt
Debug file giving the complete parse tree of the GDL source file.
dbg_ruleprec.txt
Debug file that lists the rules in precedence order (order in which they will be tested) for each pass.
$_temp.gdl
Debug file containing the output of gdlpp
