Full character set

Hi Guys/Girls,

Can you help with this: I want to create a document describing all the characters in a font (Cyrillic, Latin): A so-called full character set (ABCDE, abcde ...etc. In InDesign, I can select character by character, but it takes a very long time (the current font is more than 800 characters). Is there any software, script or similar that does this work? Thanks in advance for prompt assistance ;-)

Would this thread help? http://www.typophile.com/node/64147

(My program is written for Mac OSX Snow Leopard, so it might not work on your system. But it does what it says on the tin: write the character code of each Unicode character defined in the font into a plain text file.)

I wrote a Robofab script that will generate a utf16 text file containing all glyphs in the font with a unicode value.

Hope this helps!
