( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

Good morning

I'd like to use my nice Poscript Type 1 (windows format) typefaces with GD. If I want to use TrueType, I can compile gd linked with freetype, and then I can rasterise those fonts into an image. However, I can't seem to find much information anywhere on the best way of using Type 1 fonts with Perl's GD. I don't want to have to convert the typefaces from Type1 to TTF format, 'cos they tend to end up looking a bit nasty. Ideally, I'd like a solution that will work happily with *nix Perl, Perl under Cygwin and Activestate Perl on Windows.

I know it must be possible, because PHP and the Imager module can do it ... tips and pointers humbly appreciated.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
