Thanks David for your quick answer.
We won't be able to help you if you don't give us more information about
what you're trying to do.
I try to generate a bitmap to display a string, taking care of original string
charmap and available charmap in the .ttf
Mostly I succeed, in manage glyph bitmaps, anti-aliasing, bearing. But there is
a mystery I cannot explain about charmaps.
I have a class that can convert a string into and from
unicode,appleroman,win32,latin1,adobe. I took the char codes from unicode.org
and checked all on windows,macos9/X,linux before doing all this. I am quite
sure that my charset conversions are corrects.
For example, could you tell us:
- which version of FreeType you're using
- what fonts are concerned by your problems
(is it possible to get them easily ?)
Marriage and Chevara
I send it to you by mail
- what kind of compilation errors are you talking of ?? How
did you try to compile it ?
compilation with cygwin worked all right by ftview.exe "could not allocate display
So I tryed to add all files into a msdev5 wni32 application project (including
graph) and set some compile and link options, but I had so many errors,
including macro undefined etc. that I gave up.
- what does the "ftdump" tool that comes with FreeType 2 demos
package reports (I can send you a Windows binary, if you need
ftdump compiled with cygwin gave :
ME>ttf/ft2demos-2.1.2/bin> ftdump c:\\winnt\\fonts\\chvr____.ttf
