Font::TTF::Maxp

NAME

Font::TTF::Maxp − Maximum Profile table in a font

DESCRIPTION

A collection of useful instance variables following the TTF standard. Probably the most used being "numGlyphs". Note that this particular value is foundational and should be kept up to date by the application, it is not updated by "update".

Handles table versions 0.5, 1.0

INSTANCE VARIABLES

No others beyond those specified in the standard:

numGlyphs
maxPoints
maxContours
maxCompositePoints
maxCompositeContours
maxZones
maxTwilightPoints
maxStorage
maxFunctionDefs
maxInstructionDefs
maxStackElements
maxSizeOfInstructions
maxComponentElements
maxComponentDepth

METHODS

$t−>read
Reads the table into memory

$t−>out($fh)
Writes the table to a file either from memory or by copying.

$t−>minsize()
Returns the minimum size this table can be. If it is smaller than this, then the table must be bad and should be deleted or whatever.

$t−>update
Calculates all the maximum values for a font based on the glyphs in the font. Only those fields which require hinting code interpretation are ignored and left as they were read.
