NAME

PS_begin_font — Starts a new Type3 font

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS

#include <pslib.h>

int PS_begin_font(PSDoc *psdoc, const char *fontname, int reserverd, double a, double b, double c, double d, double e, double f, const char *optlist)

DESCRIPTION

PostScript supports various kinds of fonts. Type3 fonts are fonts
                 whose glyphs are created with a subset of regular PostScript commands.
                        This function starts a new Type3 font embedded into the document which
                        must be closed with PS_end_font. Each glyph is
                        created with consecutive calls of PS_end_glyph and
                        PS_end_glyph. Once the new font is created, it
                        can be used like any other font loaded with
                        PS_findfont. The passed floating point numbers
                        are used to set the font matrix. a and
                        d are usually set to 0.001. The remaining
                        numbers can be left zero.

Each call of PS_begin_font must be accompanied
                 by a call to PS_end_pattern(3).

PS_begin_font has been introduced in version
                 0.4.0 of pslib.

RETURN VALUE

Returns identifier of the font or zero in case of an error.
                 The identifier is a positiv number greater 0.
