$name = $font->altname() Returns the fonts alternative-name (aka. windows-name for a postscript font).
$name = $font->subname() Returns the fonts subname (aka. font-variant, schriftschnitt).
$name = $font->apiname() Returns the fonts name to be used internally (should be equal to $font->name).
$issymbol = $font->issymbol() Returns the fonts symbol flag.
$iscff = $font->iscff() Returns the fonts compact-font-format flag.

($llx, $lly, $urx, $ury) = $font->fontbbox() Returns the fonts bounding-box.
$capheight = $font->capheight() Returns the fonts capheight value.
$xheight = $font->xheight() Returns the fonts xheight value.
$missingwidth = $font->missingwidth() Returns the fonts missingwidth value.
$maxwidth = $font->maxwidth() Returns the fonts maxwidth value.
$avgwidth = $font->avgwidth() Returns the fonts avgwidth value.
$flags = $font->flags() Returns the fonts flags value.
$stemv = $font->stemv() Returns the fonts stemv value.
$stemh = $font->stemh() Returns the fonts stemh value.
$italicangle = $font->italicangle() Returns the fonts italicangle value.
$isfixedpitch = $font->isfixedpitch() Returns the fonts isfixedpitch flag.
$underlineposition = $font->underlineposition() Returns the fonts underlineposition value.
$underlinethickness = $font->underlinethickness() Returns the fonts underlinethickness value.

$uni = $font->uniByGlyph $char Returns the unicode by glyph-name.
$uni = $font->uniByEnc $char Returns the unicode by the fonts encoding map.
$uni = $font->uniByMap $char Returns the unicode by the fonts default map.
$char = $font->encByGlyph $glyph Returns the character by the given glyph-name of the fonts encoding map.
$char = $font->encByUni $uni Returns the character by the given unicode of the fonts encoding map.
$char = $font->mapByGlyph $glyph Returns the character by the given glyph-name of the fonts default map.
$char = $font->mapByUni $uni Returns the character by the given unicode of the fonts default map.

$name = $font->glyphByMap $char Returns the glyphs name by the fonts default map.
$width = $font->wxByGlyph $glyph Returns the glyphs width.
$width = $font->wxByUni $uni Returns the unicodes width.
$width = $font->wxByEnc $char Returns the characters width based on the current encoding.
$width = $font->wxByMap $char Returns the characters width based on the fonts default encoding.
$wd = $font->width $text Returns the width of $text as if it were at size 1. <B>BEWARE:B> works only correctly if a proper perl-string is used either in native or utf8 format (check utf8-flag).
