I'm a programmer and for some testing I need a font that covers all the glyphs and the characters encoded by the UTF8 standard.

I personally can't remember or find anything like that, I hope you can name a font that will meet my requirement.

It's a long shot, but do the characters have to be visible? – Brendan Jun 14 '14 at 22:23
@Brendan yes, because I need some kind of visual feedback – user2485710 Jun 14 '14 at 22:25

I won't act like I found this myself...this answer over on Stack Overflow points out that while covering every code point is unfeasible, a commenter references Unifont, which is lo-fi but should serve your purposes pretty well.

I was hoping for some scalable format, but at least this will print something useful, thanks, let's see if someone will post anything other than this GNU font. – user2485710 Jun 14 '14 at 22:32
