Hello Mark,

I am having a problem getting FreeType under windows to return any kerning values for an Adobe Type 1 font. In looking at the corresponding AFM file for the font, I can see the kerning pairs quite literally.

In looking at the Type 1 driver, I can see the corresponding AFM reader to read this. The compilation definitely include the Get_Kerning and the T1_Read_AFM into the FT_Driver_Class_Rec structure.

The code goes into the Get_Kerning but the afm_data for the face is always NULL. And my breakpoints in the T1_Read_AFM are never executed.

You should call FT_Attach_File( face, "yourfile.afm" ) to read the
kerning values into the face object. Then, you'll be able to use
