font­table – Print font ta­bles from a LaTeX doc­u­ment

This is a pack­age ver­sion of nf­ss­font.tex (part of the LaTeX dis­tri­bu­tion); it en­ables you to print a ta­ble of the char­ac­ters of a font and/or some text (for demon­stra­tion or test­ing pur­poses), from within a doc­u­ment. (Pack­ages such as test­font and nf­ss­font.tex pro­vide these fa­cil­i­ties, but they run as in­ter­ac­tive pro­grams: the user is ex­pected to type de­tails of what is needed.)

Note that the pack­age mft­inc also has a \font­table func­tion; the doc­u­men­ta­tion ex­plains how avoid a clash with that pack­age.
