xgridfit [Peter Baker]

Free software by Peter Baker from 2006, who writes: Xgridfit, the "hinting" language for FontForge users crazy enough to work with TrueType fonts, has now reached release 1.5. New features include the ability to call a glyph program in the manner of a macro, complete with parameters (including a special "offset" parameter that is automatically added to all point numbers); a restore-default element for restoring graphics variables to their default state; and an alias element for accessing things (control-values, variables, etc.) under different names. Xgridfit is a high-level, XML-based language for gridfitting, or "hinting," TrueType fonts. It conceals the assembly language-like character of the TrueType instruction set, and offers an XML-clad readable programming language.
