NAME

  Imager::Font::Type1 - low-level functions for Type1 fonts

 

DESCRIPTION

Imager::Font creates a Imager::Font::Type1 object when asked to create a font object based on a .pfb file.

See Imager::Font to see how to use this type.

This class provides low-level functions that require the caller to perform data validation

By default Imager no longer creates the t1lib.log log file. You can re-enable that by calling Imager::init() with the "t1log" option:

  Imager::init(t1log=>1);

This must be called before creating any fonts.

Currently specific to Imager::Font::Type1, you can use the following flags when drawing text or calculating a bounding box:

underline
Draw the text with an underline.
overline
Draw the text with an overline.
strikethrough
Draw the text with a strikethrough.

Obviously, if you're calculating the bounding box the size of the line is included in the box, and the line isn't drawn :)
