ttf.library

A truetype outline font library for Amiga computers.

Overview

ttf.library is a truetype compatible font engine for Amiga OS. It functions in a manner compatible with the outline font engine standard established by Commodore with the bullet.library engine for compugraphic format fonts. Any Amiga application which uses normal system fonts can now use truetype format fonts.

Requirements

Credits and Notes

The ttf.library and related programs were made possible by the outstanding achievement known as the FreeType Project. For more information, visit http://www.freetype.org

Bugs, warnings

This is a pre-relase, not a final product.

Portions of this software are new, and have had minimal testing. The performance of this software has been heavily monitored on the development machine with enforcer, mungwall, poolwatch and other tools, however, it is still unproven. Please use caution, and use at your own risk.

Several feature of the bullet library standard have not yet been implemented (such as emboldening) as they are not required for proper font operation in many circumstances. Programs expecting to use these, or undocumented features of the bullet.library may not work as expected with ttf.library.


Downloads

ttf.library V0.8.5 archives each approximately 258K.
On the second day after the release of V0.8.3, my ISP informed me that I had already used over 80% of my allowed transfer bandwidth for the month, and my site will be turned off for the remainder of the month if it excedes the quota. In the interest of preserving this site's availability, the archive links below are pointing to the main Aminet site. You can find ttf.library in the util/libs section of any mirror.

Note: ttf.library archives are now PGP signed

A MorphOS PPC port by Frank Mariak and Nicholai Benalal is available at www.morphos.de
