NAME

Imager::Handy - simple access to common functions  

SYNOPSIS

  use Imager ':handy';
  my $color = NC(255, 0, 0);
  my $font = NF(1.0, 0, 0);

 

DESCRIPTION

If you use Imager with the ":handy" import tag, it will export a number of functions that can shorter your code.
NC
newcolor
newcolour
Create a new Imager::Color object, supplying any parameters to the new() method.

  my $color = NC('red');

NF
newfont
Create a new Imager::Font object, supplying any parameters to the new() method.

  my $font = NF(file => 'foo.ttf');

NCF
Create a new Imager::Color::Font object, supplying any parameter to the new() method.

  my $colorf = NCF(1.0, 0, 0);

 

BUGS

NC() can be mostly replaced by supplying the color name or other description directly to the drawing method.
