Identify to identify fonts

Post by riegel »

Does Image Magick have any way to identify Fonts? I know it wasn't possible a year or so ago, but wondered if that kind of functionality might have been added.

If not anyone have a method for identifying font names from the font files?

Thanks for any ideas,
