in reply to Re^2: Tiny font
in thread Tiny font

Thanks for sharing your results, oha. Author of "PixelOperator8.ttf" has clearly put some effort into his font, so that at 8 px height text looks as good as it possibly ever can, probably. (See some comparisons below.) I just hope these 8 px are not modern display pixels, but something larger.

Your link is to outdated (and named differently) version, which produces "somewhat" inferior result. Here is better link.

Below is "screenshot" (produced in a way similar to what you did:

say $im-> getscanline( y => $_, type => 'index' ) =~ tr/\0\1/O /r for 0 .. $im-> getheight - 1;

, for "paletted" image 80x60, similar to what I did :) ), for these test subjects:
