Pango is a library for laying out and rendering text, with an emphasis on
internationalization. Pango can be used anywhere that text layout is needed,
but using Pango in conjunction with Cairo and/or Gtk2 provides a complete
solution with high quality text handling and graphics rendering.
Dynamically loaded modules handle text layout for particular combinations of
script and font backend. Pango provides a wide selection of modules, including
modules for Hebrew, Arabic, Hangul, Thai, and a number of Indic
scripts. Virtually all of the worlds major scripts are supported.
In addition to the low level layout rendering routines, Pango includes
Pango::Layout, a high level driver for laying out entire blocks of text, and
routines to assist in editing internationalized text.

Pango tries to stick very close in spirit to the C API of the underlying
pango library. Thus, the manual available at
<http://library.gnome.org/devel/pango/stable/> also applies to this module.
Additionally, API listings in POD form are generated during compilation for
each of the sub-modules. An index of those POD pages is available at
perl, Glib, Cairo, Gtk2.
Pango::index lists the autogenerated API documentation pod files for Pango.
<http://www.pango.org/> is the homepage of the pango C library. Its API
documentation is available at <http://library.gnome.org/devel/pango/stable/>.
