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

  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>

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.
