Glyph metrics

type PSCharCode = IntSource

Afm files index glyphs by PostScript character code. This is not the same as Unicode, ASCII...

It is expected to be determined by EncodingScheme in the Global Font Information Section.

data AfmFile Source

Wumpus needs a very small subset of AFM files, common to both version 2.0 and version 4.1.

Note - Bounding Box is mandatory for AFM versions 3.0 and 4.1

Cap Height is optional in AFM versions 3.0 and 4.1. As Wumpus uses cap height in calculations, glyph metrics must be build with an arbitrary value if it is not present.

Encoding Scheme is optional in AFM files.


data MonospaceDefaults cu Source

Monospace defaults are used if the font loader fails to extract the necessary fields.

The values are taken from the font correpsonding to Courier in the distributed font files.


data FontProps cu Source

The metrics read from a font file by a font loader.

NOTE - FontProps is parametric on cu - Character Unit and not on the usual u. A typical character unit is AfmUnit, the unit of measurement for AFM files (1000th of a point).

The is the initial representation used by Wumpus-Basic as an syntax tree when loading font files.

buildMetricsOps :: (FontSize -> cu -> Double) -> FontProps cu -> FontMetricsSource

Build a MetricsOps function table, from a character unit scaling function and FontProps read from a file.
