Two AFDKO-related Tool Updates

I spent this evening in Gyeongju, Korea enhancing two AFDKO-related tools, and

These tools are tx filters, and simply output the list of CIDs or GIDs in a font. I had been using another tool,, to turn the list into ranges. One of the enhancements, which is the addition of an “-r” option, makes the tool no longer necessary. In other words, the following two command lines have the same result:

% -r <font>
% <font> |

The tool was additionally enhanced with an “-s” option, which outputs the ranges on a single line using a comma separator. This makes the output very convenient in terms of repurposing it, such as copying it, then pasting it into a new command line as the argument of the “-g” option that is supported by many AFDKO tools. Consider the following two command lines and their output:

% -r

% -r -s
