Font::TTF::Post(3)    User Contributed Perl Documentation   Font::TTF::Post(3)

NAME
       Font::TTF::Post - Holds the Postscript names for	each glyph

DESCRIPTION
       Holds the postscript names for glyphs. Note that	they are not held as
       an array, but as	indexes	into two lists.	The first list is the standard
       Postscript name list defined by the TrueType standard. The second comes
       from the	font directly.

       Looking up a glyph from a Postscript name or a name from	a glyph	number
       is achieved through methods rather than variable	lookup.

       This class handles PostScript table types of 1, 2, 2.5 &	3, but not
       version 4.  Support for version 2.5 is as per Apple spec	rather than
       MS.

       The way to look up Postscript names or glyphs is:

	   $pname = $f->{'post'}{'VAL'}[$gnum];
	   $gnum = $f->{'post'}{'STRINGS'}{$pname};

INSTANCE VARIABLES
       Due to different	systems	having different limitations, there are
       various class variables available to control what post table types can
       be written.

       $Font::TTF::Post::no25
	   If set tells	Font::TTF::Post::out to	use table type 2 instead of
	   2.5 in case apps cannot handle version 2.5.

       VAL Contains an array indexed by	glyph number of	Postscript names. This
	   is used when	writing	out a font.

       STRINGS
	   An associative array	of Postscript names mapping to the highest
	   glyph with that name. These may not be in sync with VAL.

       In addition there are the standard introductory variables defined in
       the standard:

	   FormatType
	   italicAngle
	   underlinePosition
	   underlineThickness
	   isFixedPitch
	   minMemType42
	   maxMemType42
	   minMemType1
	   maxMemType1

METHODS
   $t->read
       Reads the Postscript table into memory from disk

   $t->out($fh)
       Writes out a new	Postscript name	table from memory or copies from disk

   $t->XML_element($context, $depth, $key, $val)
       Outputs the names as one	block of XML

   $t->minsize()
       Returns the minimum size	this table can be. If it is smaller than this,
       then the	table must be bad and should be	deleted	or whatever.

BUGS
       o   No support for type 4 tables
