       xgfmerge - merges two Xgridfit program files


       xgfmerge [options] file-a file-b [...]


       Xgfmerge  merges  two or more Xgridfit program files, where file-a is a
       program generated automatically from an existing  font  using  TTX  and
       ttx2xgf,  and  file-b  and  any  other  files in the list contain other
       programming for the font.  Xgfmerge outputs the merged  programming  to
       stdout.  To capture the output in a file, use this syntax:

            $xgfmerge -o merged-file.xgf file-a.xgf file-b.xgf

       Note:  To merge Xgridfit instructions with those already in a font, the
       best method is now to run Xgridfit in merge-mode (option -m).


       -c     Look for a <default  type="compile-globals"/>  element  in  each
              file  after the first in the list. If value="no" then ignore all
              <default>,  <control-value>,  <function>,  <macro>   and   <pre-
              program> elements in the file.

       -h     Display a help message.

       -n     Merge  <no-compile>  elements  from  all files. <glyph> elements
              with duplicate "ps-name" attributes are ignored.

       -o file
              The file to write the output to. If this  option  is  not  used,
              output is written to stdout.

       -p     When  a  <pre-program>  element  in  a file other than file-a is
              available, use it instead of the one from file-a. If this option
              is  not  present,  xgfmerge  merges the programming in the <pre-
              program> of file-a with that in the <pre-program>  of  whichever
              file  is  being merged at the moment.  The result is unlikely to
              be good if a single run of xgfmerge merges the contents of  more
              than two <pre-program> elements.

       -s     Sort  <glyph>  elements  in  the  output  file into alphabetical

       -v     Verbose output: xgfmerge tells you what  it  is  doing  at  each

       -x     Resolve  XIncludes  before  merging all files in the list except
              for file-a. Any XIncludes from file-a.xgf are  stripped  out  of
              the  files  before  this  operation is performed. If XInclude is
              used to  bring  global  elements  (<control-value>,  <function>,
              etc.) into these files, it is probably a good idea to use the -c
              option as well.


              An XSLT script that performs the merge.

              An XSLT script that strips out unwanted XIncludes.

              An XSLT script that sorts glyph elements in a file.

              Does some formatting of the output.
