NAME

PDF::API3::Compat::API2::Basic::TTF::Ttopen - Opentype superclass for standard Opentype lookup based tables (GSUB and GPOS)

CONTENTS

DESCRIPTION

Handles all the script, lang, feature, lookup stuff for a PDF::API3::Compat::API2::Basic::TTF::Gsub/PDF::API3::Compat::API2::Basic::TTF::Gpos table leaving the class specifics to the subclass

INSTANCE VARIABLES

The instance variables of an opentype table form a complex sub-module hierarchy.
Version This contains the version of the table as a floating point number
SCRIPTS The scripts list is a hash of script tags. Each script tag (of the form $t->{’SCRIPTS’}{$tag}) has information below it.
OFFSET This variable is preceeded by a space and gives the offset from the start of the table (not the table section) to the script table for this script
REFTAG This variable is preceded by a space and gives a corresponding script tag to this one such that the offsets in the file are the same. When writing, it is up to the caller to ensure that the REFTAGs are set correctly, since these will be used to assume that the scripts are identical. Note that REFTAG must refer to a script which has no REFTAG of its own.
DEFAULT This corresponds to the default language for this script, if there is one, and contains the same information as an itemised language
LANG_TAGS This contains an array of language tag strings (each 4 bytes) corresponding to the languages listed by this script
$lang Each language is a hash containing its information:
OFFSET This variable is preceeded by a a space and gives the offset from the start of the whole table to the language table for this language
REFTAG This variable is preceded by a space and has the same function as for the script REFTAG, only for the languages within a script.
RE-ORDER This indicates re-ordering information, and has not been set. The value should always be 0.
DEFAULT This holds the index of the default feature, if there is one, or -1 otherwise.
FEATURES This is an array of feature indices which index into the FEATURES instance variable of the table
FEATURES The features section of instance variables corresponds to the feature table in the opentype table.
FEAT_TAGS This array gives the ordered list of feature tags for this table. It is used during reading and writing for converting between feature index and feature tag.

The rest of the FEATURES variable is itself a hash based on the feature tag for each feature. Each feature has the following structure:
OFFSET This attribute is preceeded by a space and gives the offset relative to the start of the whole table of this particular feature.
PARMS This is an unused offset to the parameters for each feature
LOOKUPS This is an array containing indices to lookups in the LOOKUP instance variable of the table
INDEX This gives the feature index for this feature and is used during reading and writing for converting between feature tag and feature index.

LOOKUP This variable is an array of lookups in order and is indexed via the features of a language of a script. Each lookup contains subtables and other information:
OFFSET This name is preceeded by a space and contains the offset from the start of the table to this particular lookup
TYPE This is a subclass specific type for a lookup. It stipulates the type of lookup and hence subtables within the lookup
FLAG Holds the lookup flag bits
SUB This holds an array of subtables which are subclass specific. Each subtable must have an OFFSET. The other variables described here are an abstraction used in both the GSUB and GPOS tables which are the target subclasses of this class.
OFFSET This is preceeded by a space and gives the offset relative to the start of the table for this subtable
FORMAT Gives the sub-table sub format for this GSUB subtable. It is assumed that this value is correct when it comes time to write the subtable.
COVERAGE Most lookups consist of a coverage table corresponding to the first glyph to match. The offset of this coverage table is stored here and the coverage table looked up against the GSUB table proper. There are two lookups without this initial coverage table which is used to index into the RULES array. These lookups have one element in the RULES array which is used for the whole match.
RULES The rules are a complex array. Each element of the array corresponds to an element in the coverage table (governed by the coverage index). If there is no coverage table, then there is considered to be only one element in the rules array. Each element of the array is itself an array corresponding to the possibly multiple string matches which may follow the initial glyph. Each element of this array is a hash with fixed keys corresponding to information needed to match a glyph string or act upon it. Thus the RULES element is an array of arrays of hashes which contain the following keys:
MATCH This contains a sequence of elements held as an array. The elements may be glyph ids (gid), class ids (cids), or offsets to coverage tables. Each element corresponds to one glyph in the glyph string. See MATCH_TYPE for details of how the different element types are marked.
PRE This array holds the sequence of elements preceeding the first match element and has the same form as the MATCH array.
POST This array holds the sequence of elements to be tested for following the match string and is of the same form as the MATCH array.
ACTION This array holds information regarding what should be done if a match is found. The array may either hold glyph ids (which are used to replace or insert or whatever glyphs in the glyph string) or 2 element arrays consisting of:
OFFSET Offset from the start of the matched string that the lookup should start at when processing the substring.
LOOKUP_INDEX The index to a lookup to be acted upon on the match string.
CLASS For those lookups which use class categories rather than glyph ids for matching this is the offset to the class definition used to categories glyphs in the match string.
PRE_CLASS This is the offset to the class definition for the before match glyphs
POST_CLASS This is the offset to the class definition for the after match glyphs.
ACTION_TYPE This string holds the type of information held in the ACTION variable of a RULE. It is subclass specific.
MATCH_TYPE This holds the type of information in the MATCH array of a RULE. This is subclass specific.
ADJUST This corresponds to a single action for all items in a coverage table. The meaning is subclass specific.
CACHE This key starts with a space

A hash of other tables (such as coverage tables, classes, anchors, device tables) based on the offset given in the subtable to that other information. Note that the documentation is particularly unhelpful here in that such tables are given as offsets relative to the beginning of the subtable not the whole GSUB table. This includes those items which are stored relative to another base within the subtable.

METHODS

CW$t->read

Reads the table passing control to the subclass to handle the subtable specifics

CW$t->read_sub($fh, CW$lookup, CW$index)

This stub is to allow subclasses to read subtables of lookups in a table specific manner. A reference to the lookup is passed in along with the subtable index. The file is located at the start of the subtable to be read

CW$t->extension()

Returns the lookup number for the extension table that allows access to 32-bit offsets.

CW$t->out($fh)

Writes this Opentype table to the output calling $t->out_sub for each sub table at the appropriate point in the output. The assumption is that on entry the number of scripts, languages, features, lookups, etc. are all resolved and the relationships fixed. This includes a script’s LANG_TAGS list and that all scripts and languages in their respective dictionaries either have a REFTAG or contain real data.

CW$t->num_sub($lookup)

Asks the subclass to count the number of subtables for a particular lookup and to return that value. Used in out().

CW$t->out_sub($fh, CW$lookup, CW$index)

This stub is to allow subclasses to output subtables of lookups in a table specific manner. A reference to the lookup is passed in along with the subtable index. The file is located at the start of the subtable to be output

Internal Functions & Methods

Most of these methods are used by subclasses for handling such things as coverage tables.

    copy($ref)

Internal function to copy the top level of a dictionary to create a new dictionary. Only the top level is copied.

CW$t->read_cover($cover_offset, CW$lookup_loc, CW$lookup, CW$fh, CW$is_cover)

Reads a coverage table and stores the results in $lookup->{’ CACHE’}, that is, if it hasn’t been read already.

ref_cache($obj, CW$cache, CW$offset)

Internal function to keep track of the local positioning of subobjects such as coverage and class definition tables, and their offsets. What happens is that the cache is a hash of sub objects indexed by the reference (using a string mashing of the reference name which is valid for the duration of the reference) and holds a list of locations in the output string which should be filled in with the offset to the sub object when the final string is output in out_final.

Uses tricks for Tie::Refhash

out_final($fh, CW$out, CW$cache_list, CW$state)

Internal function to actually output everything to the file handle given that now we know the offset to the first sub object to be output and which sub objects are to be output and what locations need to be updated, we can now generate everything. $cache_list is an array of two element arrays. The first element is a cache object, the second is an offset to be subtracted from each reference to that object made in the cache.

If $state is 1, then the output is not sent to the filehandle and the return value is the string to be output. If $state is absent or 0 then output is not limited by storing in a string first and the return value is "";

CW$self->read_context($lookup, CW$fh, CW$type, CW$fmt, CW$cover, CW$count, CW$loc)

Internal method to read context (simple and chaining context) lookup subtables for the GSUB and GPOS table types. The assumed values for $type correspond to those for GSUB, so GPOS should adjust the values upon calling.

CW$self->out_context($lookup, CW$fh, CW$type, CW$fmt, CW$ctables, CW$out, CW$num)

Provides shared behaviour between GSUB and GPOS tables during output for context (chained and simple) rules. In addition, support is provided here for type 4 GSUB tables, which are not used in GPOS. The value for $type corresponds to the type in a GSUB table so calling from GPOS should adjust the value accordingly.

BUGS

o No way to share cachable items (coverage tables, classes, anchors, device tables) across different lookups. The items are always output after the lookup and repeated if necessary. Within lookup sharing is possible.
