NAME

SWF::Builder::Character::Font - SWF font object

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS



  my $font = $mc->new_font(c:/windows/font/arial.ttf);
  $font->add_glyph(0123456789);



DESCRIPTION

This module creates SWF fonts from TrueType fonts.
$font = $mc->new_font( $fontfile [, $fontname] ) returns a new font. $fontfile is a outline font file name or an indirect font name. The font file name should be specified a full path name. Supported indirect font names are ’_sans’, ’_serif’, ’_typewriter’, _\x{30b4}\x{30b7}\x{30c3}\x{30af} (’gosikku’ in Japanese katakana), _\x{660e}\x{671d} (’mincho’ in Japanese kanji), and _\x{7b49}\x{5e45} (’tofuku’ in Japanese kanji). When you use outline fonts, either Font::TTF or Font::FreeType is necessary. Font::TTF supports TrueType fonts (*.ttf/*.ttc). Font::FreeType supports TrueType, OpenType, and PostScript fonts (*.ttf/*.ttc/*.otf/*.pfb). Optional $fontname is a font name referred by HTMLs in dynamic texts. The font name is taken from the TrueType file if not defined.
$font->embed( [$embed] ) sets/gets a flag to embed the font or not.
$font->is_readonly gets a permission flag to use the font only ’preview & print’. If the flag is set, the font cannot be used for text field. This works properly only when Font::TTF are used and ’OS/2’ table are defined in the font.
$font->get_average_width gets the average character width. This works properly only when Font::TTF are used and ’OS/2’ table are defined in the font.
$font->add_glyph( $char_string [, $e_char] ) adds glyph data of the characters of the string to the font. Usually, SWF::Builder::character::Text adds required glyph data automatically. It is necessary to do add_glyph if the font is used for a dynamic text or a text field which will be changed at playing time. if $e_char is present, add_glyph adds glyphs of characters from first character of $char_string to first character of $e_char. For example, $font->add_glyph(’a’, ’z’) adds glyphs of all lower case alphabet.
$font->LanguageCode( $code ) sets the spoken language of texts to which the font is applied. $code can take ’none’, ’Latin’, ’Japanese’, ’Korean’, ’Simplified Chinese’, and ’Traditional Chinese’. It can also take a number, 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5, or an initial, ’n’, ’L’, ’J’, ’K’, ’S’(or ’C’), and ’T’, respectively.
