Is it possible to print a list of all fonts installed?

Questions and postings pertaining to the usage of ImageMagick regardless of the interface. This includes the command-line utilities, as well as the C and C++ APIs. Usage questions are like "How do I use ImageMagick to create drop shadows?".

Is it possible to print a list of all fonts installed?

Post by charlie » 2008-12-17T22:57:37-07:00

Greetings,
I've been searching the forum for a couple of days, in an effort to find
some way to get ImageMagick to create a "font sheet". That is; create
a montage of all the fonts installed on my system. Sending:

Code: Select all

convert -list font
Indicates that IM knows where, and which fonts are installed on my system.
But doesn't print a sample of the fonts.
I looked at:
http://www.rubblewebs.co.uk./imagemagic ... _f_23.html
But, while it seems to work for RubbleWebs, it (as posted) can not work for anyone else. :(
The problem with the script is (at least) two fold;
line 3:

Code: Select all

preg_match(/^LIB_VERSION_NUMBER ([0-9,]+)$/m, shell_exec("convert -list configure "), $vnums);
can't possibly work because:

Code: Select all

/^LIB_VERSION_NUMBER ([0-9,]+)$/m
isn't quoted - ie;

Code: Select all

'/^LIB_VERSION_NUMBER ([0-9,]+)$/m'
Once that is corrected, the script breaks at line 40:

Code: Select all

$FirstPart = explode( , $NoPath[$i]);
This is basically a preg_split(). But I assume RubbleWebs is using explode()
because in many cases it is faster. The problem with all this is that both
methods require a delimiter. But I don't know which one RubbleWebs intended
to use - it should probably also be quoted - eg;

Code: Select all

$FirstPart = explode( "<some-delimiter>", $NoPath[$i]);
or

Code: Select all

$FirstPart = explode( '<some-delimiter>', $NoPath[$i]);
depending on your quoting needs.
Anyway, if anyone knows how to fix this, or has found a way to get IM to
create a font sheet. I'd really appreciate a pointer. :)

Thank you for all your time and consideration.

Sorry about that Chuck

The code is OK on this page: http://www.rubblewebs.co.uk./imagemagic ... /fonts.php where it is in a file but the snippet section is in a database and I pressume magic quotes has had an effect!

A couple of the fonts may not be displayed or show up as ??????????????

Code: Select all

<?php 
// Select the version number from the configeration file
    preg_match('/^LIB_VERSION_NUMBER ([0-9,]+)$/m', shell_exec("convert -list configure "), $vnums);

// Seperate the numbers at the ,
    $number = explode( ",", $vnums[1] );

// Format the version from 6,3,4,1 format to 06030401
    $version = "";
    for($i=0;$i<4;$i++)
    {
    $version .= str_pad( $number[$i], 2, '0', STR_PAD_LEFT );
    } 

// The 'list' method used to get the fonts changed in IM v6.3.5-7
    $font_list = ( $version > "06030507" ) ? "font" : "type";

// Populate the array only - do not display it
    exec("convert -list $font_list", $IMarray, $code);

// Sort the array alphabeticly
    sort( $IMarray );

// Setup some default values
    $delete = array();
    $image_list = "";

// Function to remove items from array
    function array_delete( $array, $filterfor ){ 
        $thisarray = array (); 
        foreach( $array as $value ) 
        if( stristr( $value, $filterfor )===false && strlen( $value )>0) 
        $thisarray[] = $value; 
        return $thisarray; 
    } 

// Remove items containing Name from the arrary
    $NoName = array_delete( $IMarray, "Name" ); 

// Remove items containing Path: from the array
    $NoPath = array_delete( $NoName, "Path:" ); 

// Find the amount of items in the array
    $count = count( $NoPath );

// Reduce the count by one as the array starts at 0
    $count = $count-1;

// Start the loop to generate the images
    for ( $i=2; $i<=$count; $i++ ) {

// Get the font name from the array
        $FirstPart = explode(' ', $NoPath[$i]);
        $Font = $FirstPart['0'];
        $Image = $Font.".png";
        
// Create the images
        exec("convert -size 250x15 xc:lightblue -font $Font -pointsize 13 -draw \"gravity West fill black text 0,0 $Font \" $Image");

// Generate the list of images for use in the large image
        $image_list = $image_list." ".$Image;

// Generate the array of tempory images to delete
        $delete[] = $Image;
    }

// Create the large image
    exec("convert -background white -gravity Center $image_list -append fonts.png");

// Delete the tempory images
    foreach ( $delete as $value ) { 
        unlink( $value ); }

Hello Bonzo, and thank you very much for your reply!
I pressume magic quotes has had an effect!
Ahh, that might explain it. :)

I see you used a quoted space for a delimiter. When I was
trying to fix the copy I downloaded from the "snippets" area, I used a quoted space -
both single, as well as double quotes. But unfortunately, that just created an endless
loop. So I copied the version you just posted here (thank you). But I still have the
same problem. The script never ends, and (of course) nothing is displayed to the browser.
The loop is evidenced in my web servers error log as follows:

Code: Select all

convert: unable to open image `13': No such file or directory.
convert: unable to open image `13': No such file or directory.
convert: unable to open image `13': No such file or directory.

convert: unable to open image `13': No such file or directory.
convert: unable to open image `13': No such file or directory.
convert: unable to open image `13': No such file or directory.
It will continue repeating this message (hours, if I let it) until I
shut down the server. :(

Any thoughts as to why this is happening?

Thank you again for your thoughtful reply.

Re: Is it possible to print a list of all fonts installed?

Post by Bonzo » 2008-12-18T03:43:21-07:00

The only 13 I can see is on this line:

Code: Select all

// Create the images
        exec("convert -size 250x15 xc:lightblue -font $Font -pointsize 13 -draw \"gravity West fill black text 0,0 $Font \" $Image");
So I pressume the problem is with the $Font, try changing the line to this and it will echo the command every time. You can then check it contains what it should contain.

Code: Select all

// Create the images
$cmd = "-size 250x15 xc:lightblue -font $Font -pointsize 13 -draw \"gravity West fill black text 0,0 $Font \" ";
echo $cmd."<br>";
exec("convert $cmd $Image");

Hello Bonzo, and thank you very much for your reply.

Are you sure the modification you posted:

Code: Select all

$cmd = "-size 250x15 xc:lightblue -font $Font -pointsize 13 -draw \"gravity West fill black text 0,0 $Font \" ";
echo $cmd."<br />";
exec("convert $cmd $Image");
shouldn't have been:

Code: Select all

$cmd = "convert -size 250x15 xc:lightblue -font $Font -pointsize 13 -draw \"gravity West fill black text 0,0 $Font \" ";
echo $cmd."<br />";
exec("convert $cmd $Image");
Note the addition of convert -size 250x15

In any case, running it exactly as you posted it, returned exactly
the same error as before.
However, after making the modification as I thought you had intended it to
be, returns a slightly different error:

Code: Select all

convert: unable to open image `convert': No such file or directory.
convert: unable to open image `13': No such file or directory.
convert: unable to open image `convert': No such file or directory.
convert: unable to open image `13': No such file or directory.
convert: unable to open image `convert': No such file or directory.
convert: unable to open image `13': No such file or directory.
convert: unable to open image `convert': No such file or directory.
convert: unable to open image `13': No such file or directory.
convert: unable to open image `convert': No such file or directory.
convert: unable to open image `13': No such file or directory.
convert: unable to open image `convert': No such file or directory.
convert: unable to open image `13': No such file or directory.
The errors show up in the web log not the PHP error log.

Hope this helps.

Thank you again for all your time and consideration.

--Chuck

P.S. I just looked at it closer (your code), my mistake, you were correct.
I think I've been up a bit too long w/o sleep. :?
But I still can't seem to find where the issue might be. As near as I can tell,
it must be either earlier, or later (probably earlier), or I would have seen the
command ($cmd) echoed in the log/in the browser.

:(

Update:
As an experiment, I made 2 changes

Code: Select all

exec("convert $cmd $Image");
became

Code: Select all

system("convert $cmd $Image");
and

Code: Select all

 -pointsize 13 -draw
became - I'll bet you know what I've done here already. ;)

Code: Select all

 -pointsize 24 -draw
and guess what!
Yep, you're right. The error changed to:

Code: Select all

convert: unable to open image `24': No such file or directory.
repeatedly, as before. But at least we've got something to go on.
Is it possibly the order of the options?
Maybe (mis)quoting?
I'll continue to experiment.
If you think of something - please post it.

Thank you again for all your time and consideration.

Hello again Bonzo.

Well, I did some more experimenting. It's clear now $Font is
empty. After trying several different changes, I finally ended up with this:

Code: Select all

<?php
// Select the version number from the configeration file
    preg_match('/^LIB_VERSION_NUMBER ([0-9,]+)$/m', shell_exec("convert -list configure "), $vnums);

// Seperate the numbers at the ,
    $number = explode( ",", $vnums[1] );

// Format the version from 6,3,4,1 format to 06030401
    $version = "";
    for($i=0;$i<4;$i++)
    {
    $version .= str_pad( $number[$i], 2, '0', STR_PAD_LEFT );
    }

// The 'list' method used to get the fonts changed in IM v6.3.5-7
    $font_list = ( $version > "06030507" ) ? "font" : "type";

// Populate the array only - do not display it
    exec("convert -list $font_list", $IMarray, $code);

// Sort the array alphabeticly
    sort( $IMarray );

// Setup some default values
    $delete = array();
    $image_list = "";

// Function to remove items from array
    function array_delete( $array, $filterfor ){
        $thisarray = array ();
        foreach( $array as $value )
        if( stristr( $value, $filterfor )===false && strlen( $value )>0)
        $thisarray[] = $value;
        return $thisarray;
    }

// Remove items containing Name from the arrary
    $NoName = array_delete( $IMarray, "Name");

// Remove items containing Path: from the array
    $NoPath = array_delete( $NoName, "Path:");

// Find the amount of items in the array
    $count = count( $NoPath );

// Reduce the count by one as the array starts at 0
    $count = $count-1;

// Start the loop to generate the images
    for ( $i=2; $i<=$count; $i++ ) {

// Get the font name from the array
        $FirstPart = explode(' ', $NoPath[$i]);
        $Font = $FirstPart['0'];
        $Image = $Font.'.png';
       
echo $Font."<br />";
    }

?>
This results in zero errors, and this is what's dumped to the browser:

Code: Select all

I don't see any font names, do you?

I'll see if I can debug any more noise out of the script in hopes of finding
clue(s).

If you think of anything please post it. :)

I am at work at the moment so have restrictive internet access.

I have just realised I am using Version: ImageMagick 6.3.5 on my server. I can try a later version when I get home and see what happens.
The 'list' method used to get the fonts changed in IM v6.3.5-7
What does this give you ?

Code: Select all

<?php 
// Select the version number from the configeration file
preg_match('/^LIB_VERSION_NUMBER ([0-9,]+)$/m', shell_exec("convert -list configure "), $vnums);

// Seperate the numbers at the ,
$number = explode( ",", $vnums[1] );

// Format the version from 6,3,4,1 format to 06030401
$version = "";

for($i=0;$i<4;$i++)
{
$version .= str_pad( $number[$i], 2, '0', STR_PAD_LEFT );
} 

// The 'list' method used to get the fonts changed in IM v6.3.5-7
$font_list = ( $version > "06030507" ) ? "font" : "type";

// Display the version of Imagemagick, the method to read the fonts and the list of fonts
echo "<h2>IM version: ".$version." </h2>\n
<h3>Method used: convert -list $font_list</h3>\n
<hr>\n<pre>";
system("convert -list $font_list");
echo "</pre>\n<hr>";

I have just tried this at home and it will not work. As you say $Font does not contain anything.
I will look into it later - Version: ImageMagick 6.4.0

Looks like I never tried this with a version over 6.3.5 as Imagemagick generates a different array !

A piece of code below that should work. I will tidy it up when I get time. Let me know how it goes and sorry for the problems.

Code: Select all

<?php 
system("convert -version");
// Select the version number from the configeration file
    preg_match('/^LIB_VERSION_NUMBER ([0-9,]+)$/m', shell_exec("convert -list configure "), $vnums);

    $number = explode( ",", $vnums[1] );

// Format the version from 6,3,4,1 format to 06030401
    $version = "";
    for($i=0;$i<4;$i++)
    {
    $version .= str_pad( $number[$i], 2, '0', STR_PAD_LEFT );
    } 	
	
// The 'list' method used to get the fonts changed in IM v6.3.5-7
    $font_list = ( $version > "06030507" ) ? "font" : "type";

// Populate the array only - do not display it
    exec("convert -list $font_list", $IMarray, $code);
	
// Sort the array alphabeticly
    sort( $IMarray );

// Setup some default values
    $delete = array();
    $image_list = "";

// Function to remove items from array
    function array_delete( $array, $filterfor ){ 
        $thisarray = array (); 
        foreach( $array as $value ) 
        if( stristr( $value, $filterfor )===false && strlen( $value )>0) 
        $thisarray[] = $value; 
        return $thisarray; 
    } 

// Remove items containing Name from the arrary
    $NoName = array_delete( $IMarray, "Name" ); 

// Remove items containing Path: from the array
    $NoPath = array_delete( $NoName, "Path:" ); 

// Remove items containing Path: from the array
    $NoFamily = array_delete( $NoPath, "family:" );
	
// Remove items containing Path: from the array
    $NoStretch = array_delete( $NoFamily, "stretch:" );
	
	// Remove items containing Path: from the array
    $NoWeight = array_delete( $NoStretch, "weight:" );
	
		// Remove items containing Path: from the array
    $NoStyle = array_delete( $NoWeight, "style:" );
	
// Find the amount of items in the array
    $count = count( $NoStyle );

// Reduce the count by one as the array starts at 0
    $count = $count-1;

// Get the font name from the array
        $FirstPart = explode(':', $NoStyle[$i]);
        $Font = str_replace( ' ', '', $FirstPart['1']);	
        $Image = $Font.".png";	
		
// Create the images
$cmd = "-size 250x15 xc:lightblue -font $Font -pointsize 13 -draw \"gravity West fill black text 0,0 $Font \" ";
// echo $cmd."<br>";

    }

// Create the large image

// Delete the tempory images
    foreach ( $delete as $value ) { 
        unlink( $value ); }

I have just realised I am using Version: ImageMagick 6.3.5 on my server. I can try a later version when I get home and see what happens.
The 'list' method used to get the fonts changed in IM v6.3.5-7
Ahh, I have IM 6.3.5 on one of my other machines. But noticed you appear
to account for both (older and newer) versions:

Code: Select all

// The 'list' method used to get the fonts changed in IM v6.3.5-7
    $font_list = ( $version > "06030507" ) ? "font" : "type";
Bonzo wrote:What does this give you ?

Code: Select all

<?php 
// Select the version number from the configeration file
preg_match('/^LIB_VERSION_NUMBER ([0-9,]+)$/m', shell_exec("convert -list configure "), $vnums);

// ---8<---&<---BIG-SNIP-for brevity

<hr>\n<pre>";
system("convert -list $font_list");
echo "</pre>\n<hr>";
?> 
Ahh, I posted a portion of it's output earlier in this thread. :)

Here's the portion you're likely interested in:

A piece of code below that should work. I will tidy it up when I get time. Let me know how it goes and sorry for the problems.

Code: Select all

<?php 
system("convert -version");
// Select the version number from the configeration file
    preg_match('/^LIB_VERSION_NUMBER ([0-9,]+)$/m', shell_exec("convert -list configure "), $vnums);

// Seperate the numbers at the ,
    $number = explode( ",", $vnums[1] );

--8<---8<---8<---BIG-SNIP-for brevity---

// Delete the tempory images
    foreach ( $delete as $value ) { 
        unlink( $value ); }
?> 
<img src="fonts.png">
Woohoo! you're the man!

I went to bed (7am. been up all night working) scratching my head about this
section:

Code: Select all

// Remove items containing Name from the arrary
    $NoName = array_delete( $IMarray, "Name" );

// Remove items containing Path: from the array
    $NoPath = array_delete( $NoName, "Path:" );
Now I know why. ;)

That's the trick. Works like a champ! :lol:

Thank you Bonzo for all your time and consideration.
I really appreciate it. :) I give you a 2 thumbs up. :)

P.S. I got frustrated earlier and decided to see if I could coerce montage
into making me a font sheet out of:

Code: Select all

convert -list font
and here's what I used:

Works pretty good, but I wish I could figure out how to get the font listing to
be only one column wide. As it is, it's 4 columns wide.

Best wishes.

Re: Is it possible to print a list of all fonts installed?

Have you tried Anthony's show_fonts, graphics_utf and text2img_fixed scripts at http://www.imagemagick.org/Usage/scripts/

see a simple example at viewtopic.php?f=1&t=12416&hilit=show_fonts

Hello fmw42, and thank you for your reply.
Have you tried Anthony's show_fonts, graphics_utf and text2img_fixed scripts at http://www.imagemagick.org/Usage/scripts/
Yes, I have. But am having trouble getting several of them to work as described. :(
see a simple example at viewtopic.php?f=1&t=12416&hilit=show_fonts
I had a look at this. The show_fonts script is one of the ones that isn't working.
For example, the example in the thread uses:

Code: Select all

show_fonts -2 -o arial2.png Arial
Using a slight variation:

Code: Select all

./show_fonts -2 -o ./Archway-Regular.png Archway-Regular
returns the following error:

Code: Select all

expr: illegal option -- 2
usage: expr [-e] expression
Looking at the script indicates that -2 is a legal option - and the one I am
interested in, eg; the full ASCII table.
Perhaps this is for the Windows version of sh - tho I don't think Windows is smart
enough to actually provide a real (C)shell. ;)
