#9 OTF Features


Love the tools, this has been a big help in working with OTF Files.

I have a question though. I was reading the GSUB table TTX outputs into XML to figure out what OTF Feature Tags (salt, aalt, liga) exist in a font. My only problem is, depending on how intense a fonts features may be, this table can make the output of the xml to be very large. For example, I took Liza pro by Underware into ttx via: ttx -s -d and the GSUB table was 192 megs!

Is there any other way to find the OTF features from the xml, or how to limit that/compress that output?

Thanks for any help you may have..

    There doesn't appear to be any way to do what you want right now, so I moved this to feature requests.

    Writing a Python script to do this is literally less than 5 lines. As such, I don't think this needs any fixing whatsoever.
