I'm really in a need of a Win32-compiled FreeType 2-compatible application a la ftstrpnm that renders a text into an image file.

Even better, I'd like some simple Python (2.4) bindings that work reliably (I tried the _imagingft library from PIL and it crashes on 2-3% of the fonts).

May be ask for that problems on the Image-sig ml would be better, I
think. There you can find the PIL developer.

I need to do some rasterization checks on several thousand fonts and I need something that is fast and does not have an overhead of an entire graphic subsystem.

As I said, my preferred environment would be Python 2.4 on Windows, though ideally, it should also work on Python 2.4 on Linux.

Yes, it would.

Please contact me off-list at address@hidden and tell me how much such a little program/library might cost, or if you know a developer who would be willing to write such a tool.

I'm a python / ctypes (you know?) developer, and I already wrote some
.so/.dll wrappers like freeimagepy ( -> and I'm ending filtersdllpy ( -> ?
[may be]). I have already started "freetypepy", but
not ended.
Do you want to help me to do it? Do you want that I end it and sell you
with an OpenSource license (that can permit to publish the library like
an open source project)?
