The FreeTypeGL package

[Tags: bsd3, deprecated, library]

Deprecated in favor of FTGL

Based on the freetype-gl library, with large modifications.

This is similar to the FTGL ( library, but avoids C++, which makes it easier to wrap and work with in Haskell-land.

This library is completely stand-alone (comes with the required C sources), so you don't need to install any C library prior to installing this. cabal intall FreeTypeGL should work fine.

Unfortunately, it seems not to perform as well as FTGL on some setups.

NOTE: Most of the demos and C-side documentation are out-of-date, as the C side was heavily modified, without updating many of the demos or the C documentation.
