NAME
       Graphics::Primitive::Font - Text	styling

DESCRIPTION
       Graphics::Primitive::Font represents the	various	options	that are
       available when rendering	text.  The options here	may or may not have an
       effect on your rendering.  They represent a cross-section of the
       features	provided by various drivers.  Setting them should not break
       anything, but may not have an effect if the driver doesn't understand
       the option.

SYNOPSIS
	 use Graphics::Primitive::Font;

	 my $font = Graphics::Primitive::Font->new({
	   family => 'Arial',
	   size	=> 12,
	   slant => 'normal'
	 });

METHODS
   Constructor
Attributes
   antialias_modes
       Set the antialiasing mode for this font.	Possible values	are default,
       none, gray and subpixel.

   family
       Set this	font's family.

   hint_metrics
       Controls	whether	to hint	font metrics.  Hinting means quantizing	them
       so that they are	integer	values in device space.	 This improves the
       consistency of letter and line spacing, however it also means that text
       will be laid out	differently at different zoom factors.	May not	be
       supported by all	drivers.

   hint_style
       Set the the type	of hinting to do on font outlines.  Hinting is the
       process of fitting outlines to the pixel	grid in	order to improve the
       appearance of the result. Since hinting outlines	involves distorting
       them, it	also reduces the faithfulness to the original outline shapes.
       Not all of the outline hinting styles are supported by all drivers.
       Options are default, none, slight, medium and full.

   size
       Set/Get the size	of this	font.

   slant
       Set/Get the slant of this font.	Valid values are normal, italic	and
       oblique.

   subpixel_order
       Set the order of	color elements within each pixel on the	display	device
       when rendering with subpixel antialiasing.  Value values	are default,
       rgb, bgr, vrgb and vbgr.

   variant
       Set/Get the variant of this font.  Valid	values are normal or small-
       caps.

   weight
       Set/Get the weight of this font.	 Value valies are normal and bold.

METHODS
   new
       Creates a new Graphics::Primitive::Font.

   derive
       Clone this font but change one or more of it's attributes by passing in
       a hashref of options:

	 my $new = $font->derive({ attr	=> $newvalue });

       The returned font will be identical to the cloned one, save the
       attributes specified.
