class Font::FreeType - Raku FreeType2 Library Instance

Synopsis

use Font::FreeType;
use Font::FreeType::Face;

my Font::FreeType $freetype .= new;
my Font::FreeType::Face $face = $freetype.face('t/fonts/Vera.ttf');

$face.set-char-size(24, 24, 100, 100);
for $face.glyph-images('ABC') {
    my $outline = .outline;
    my $bitmap = .bitmap;
    # ...
}

Description

A Font::FreeType object must first be created before other objects may be crated. Fort example to load a Font::FreeType::Face object:

use Font::FreeType;
use Font::FreeType::Face;
my Font::FreeType $freetype .= new;
my Font::FreeType::Face $face = $freetype.face('Vera.ttf');

Methods

Unless otherwise stated, all methods will die if there is an error.

new()

Create a new ‘instance’ of the freetype library and return the object. This is a class method, which doesn’t take any arguments. If you only want to load one face, then it’s probably not even worth saving the object to a variable:

version()

Returns the version number of the underlying FreeType library being used. If called in scalar context returns a Version consisting of a number in the format “major.minor.patch”.
