How do you know what glyphs are in a font? Is there a tool that shows them?

    Fontforge comes to mind. But i fear that this has nothing to do with TeX and friends and is off-topic.

  • I recommend Fontmatrix. But as Johannes_B said, this is off-topic.

  • On a Windows system, Nexus Font is a good choice.

    Welcome to TeX.SX! Can you please clarify your question. Which type of fonts are you working with. For some fonts the fonttable package will give you a list of glyphs. Nov 13, 2014 at 9:59

pdftex fontchart

You'll be asked a TFM name, such as cmr10. The picture shows a fragment of what you get from ecrm1000:
