PS_begin_font Starts a new Type3 font
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)
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.
Returns identifier of the font or zero in case of an error.
The identifier is a positiv number greater 0.
PS_end_font(3), PS_begin_glyph(3), PS_end_glyph(3)
