  The file fntproof.tex is essentiallly Knuth's testfont.tex, modified
  to make all tests noninteractive (no prompting for data).


  All files are public domain.


  You can input fntproof in a file, and then use the commands in that
  file, or you can type the commands on the command line. By default,
  the first "word" after the fntproof.tex has been read in is taken to
  be the TFM name of a font to test. Use \noinit to delay the reading of
  the font name.


  Command line:
    tex fntproof cmti10 <commands>
    tex fntproof \noinit Normal text. \init cmti10 <commands>

    \input fntproof cmr10 <commands>

fnt­proof – A pro­grammable font test pat­tern gen­er­a­tor

The pack­age im­ple­ments all the font test­ing com­mands of Knuth’s test­font.tex, but ar­ranges that in­for­ma­tion nec­es­sary for each com­mand is sup­plied as ar­gu­ments to that com­mand, rather than prompted for. This makes it pos­si­ble to type all the tests in one com­mand line, and easy to in­put the pack­age in a file and to use the com­mands there. A few ad­di­tional com­mands sup­port­ing this last pur­pose are also made avail­able.
