al_load_font - Man Page

Allegro 5 API


#include <allegro5/allegro_font.h>

ALLEGRO_FONT *al_load_font(char const *filename, int size, int flags)


Loads a font from disk. This will use al_load_bitmap_font_flags(3) if you pass the name of a known bitmap format, or else al_load_ttf_font(3).

The flags parameter is passed through to either of those functions. Bitmap and TTF fonts are also affected by the current [bitmap flags]al_set_new_bitmap_flags(3) at the time the font is loaded.
