There are tons of tools out there for listing all glyphs contained in a font.

I'm looking for the opposite: given a Unicode character, how can I find all installed fonts that contain it? Freeware preferred

interesting question, would like to know if there's such software (GUI or command line) for linux, because I'm curious about how application can render Chinese characters when I choosed a font which doesn't contains Chinese (for example, ubuntu mono). – LiuYan 刘研 Mar 12 '13 at 8:58
@LiuYan刘研 I haven't tried, but it looks like gucharmap does it. For the record: PopChar X is an alternative for Mac (non-free). – user123444555621 Mar 12 '13 at 19:22
As a last resort, you can always use online – user123444555621 Mar 12 '13 at 19:39
