Download FontForge, open your font, goto Elenent --> Font Info --> Lookups
and you will see the features included.

>>Hi, all
>I know the command otfinfo can tell us advanced features of an otf file. This command works for a lot of (but not all) TTF format files, too. But it never works for TTC format files, at least on my computer which is running archlinux. Here comes my question, is there a way to find what kinds of advanced features are available for a TTF/TTC format font? Take Times.ttc which comes from Snow Leopard Development Preview for example, using fontspec with default setting, no ligatures appeared, I mean something like "ff" "fi". I wonder whether ligatures are unavailable for this font or I should enables them manually by some commands of fontspec. Thanks!
