AFDKO CompareFamily

Indices : Software : Font Validation Software : AFDKO CompareFamily

CompareFamily is a testing tool that is part of the Adobe Font Development Kit for OpenType (AFDKO). As of version 2, it's a command-line only tool. AFDKO is available for OS X and Windows.

CompareFamily does a large number of different little tests. Many (though not all) are aimed at testing the relationships between fonts in a family to look for unexpected inconsistentcies. For example, if one font in a family has a different copyright or trademark statement, that will get flagged with a warning. CompareFamily also looks at style naming, style linking and weightclass settings, all of which need to be coordinated within a family.
