...or, if you're interested now, you can use Eddie Kohler's lcdftools for
this, in particular:

  otfinfo -f AGaramondPro-Regular.otf

You can pick it up at <http://www.lcdf.org/type/>, and build it yourself,
or you can get it prebuilt from Gerben as an i-Installer package. 

Incidentally, the command yields the following output:

aalt    Access All Alternates
c2sc    Small Capitals From Capitals
case    Case-Sensitive Forms
cpsp    Capital Spacing
dlig    Discretionary Ligatures
dnom    Denominators
frac    Fractions
kern    Kerning
liga    Standard Ligatures
lnum    Lining Figures
numr    Numerators
onum    Oldstyle Figures
ordn    Ordinals
ornm    Ornaments
pnum    Proportional Figures
salt    Stylistic Alternates
sinf    Scientific Inferiors
smcp    Small Capitals
sups    Superscript
titl    Titling
tnum    Tabular Figures
zero    Slashed Zero
