Just to mention, for dumping data from otf/ttf, I have had good luck
with ttx from "fonttools".

I had to install a whole separate version of Python to get it working,
but it was worth it. E.g., I could never have made the recent Lucida
releases without it.  (It supports round trip editing, i.e., one can
edit the xml it outputs, and then it can recompile to ttf/otf.)

Just passing on FWIW ... --best, karl.

P.S. FontForge can do pretty much anything, but the text in the
interface is so tiny that it's basically unusable for me to do anything
but the simplest jobs. I have found no way to change the font size,
either in the documentation, or online, or from friends' tips. Always
refers to doing various GUI things that don't exist in the version I'm
looking at, or don't work, or are otherwise unclear. Quite frustrating,
all in all.
