This class wraps a generic
Type1 font object and provides the methods needed for working with the font in a PDF context.
Array of valid encoding names in PDF
Returns the PDF object associated with the wrapper.
Public Class Methods
The optional argument
pdf_object can be used to set the PDF font object that this wrapper should be associated with. If no object is set, a suitable one is automatically created.
pdf_object is provided, the PDF object's encoding is used. Otherwise, the WinAnsiEncoding or, for 'Special' fonts, the font's internal encoding is used. The optional argument
custom_encoding can be set to
true so that a custom encoding is used (only respected if
pdf_object is not provided).
Public Instance Methods
Returns a custom
Glyph object which represents the given
string via the given glyph
This functionality can be used to associate a single glyph name with multiple, different strings for replacement glyph purposes. When used in such a way, the used glyph name is often :question.
Returns an array of glyph objects representing the characters in the UTF-8 encoded string.
If a Unicode codepoint is not available as glyph object, it is tried to map the codepoint using the font's internal encoding. This is useful, for example, for the ZapfDingbats font to use ASCII characters for accessing the glyphs.
Encodes the glyph and returns the code string.
Returns the type of the font, i.e. :Type1.
