Hi Andy,

///Please ignore this if this is not what you asked for..
Assuming your platform is linux/unix, then here is what u should do:
1. unpack the archive with `tar xzvf freetype-1.3.1.tar.gz'
2. From command prompt goto the freetype directory
3. enter these
        make install
4. if everything is fine, then your lib and test programs are installed.
5. From the same terminal issue command: ftstring ppem aa.ttf
6. finito

Now about "which steps must be used and which steps are not", well maybe you
should read the user.txt file specially the second part " II. Step-by-step
Example". This should help.

I have ported the freetype-1.3.1 library to my platform and
now I want to show .ttf using this library APIs step by step.

Please give some advice about it
