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

In GrandFather's code there did appear this:

my ($x_ppem, $y_ppem, $ascender, $descender, $width, $height, $max_a +dvance) = $overL->QueryFontMetrics ( pointsize => $points, text => "$overText", '@C:/WINDOWS/Fonts/times.ttf', # Omit for default font );

In order to enhance portability I would suggest a mild wrapper around the font -finding parameter (untested as of this posting):

my $mswinpath; my $fontpath = ($mswinpath = $ENV{SYSTEMDIR} || $ENV{WINDIR}) ? q[@]. $mswinpath .q[/Fonts/times.ttf] : q[times]; $fontpath =~ tr:\\:/:s; my ($x_ppem, $y_ppem, $ascender, $descender, $width, $height, $max_a +dvance) = $overL->QueryFontMetrics ( pointsize => $points, text => "$overText", $fontpath );

I'm not certain that 'times' is a valid font specifier on X11 (*nix) systems, but I suspect that it will work fairly widely.

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.
