fcft_rasterize_text_run_utf32 - Man Page

rasterize a series of glyphs for a text string


#include <fcft/fcft.h>

struct fcft_text_run *fcft_rasterize_text_run_utf32(

struct fcft_font *font, size_t len, const uint32_t text[static len], enum fcft_subpixel subpixel);


fcft_rasterize_text_run_utf32() shapes and rasterizes the UTF-32 encoded Unicode string text into a series of glyphs using the primary font, and possibly one or more fallback fonts, in font.

subpixel allows you to specify which subpixel mode to use. See fcft_rasterize_char_utf32() for details.

The string is first segmented into grapheme clusters using utf8proc. Each grapheme is assigned a font using the normal font lookup rules (see fcft_rasterize_char_utf32()).

Next, HarfBuzz is used to guess each grapheme's script (~language). Consecutiv graphemes that both have been assigned the same font, and belong to the same script are merged into a "partial" text run.

Finally, each partial text run is shaped with HarfBuzz.

Return Value

On error, NULL is returned.

On success, a pointer to a dynamically allocated text-run is returned:

  struct fcft_text_run {
      const struct fcft_glyph **glyphs;
      int *cluster;
      size_t count;

Both glyphs and cluster are arrays with count elements. cluster contains the character offsets (in the original string) of each corresponding glyph.

Note that the glyphs' cols member are invalid.

The text-run is not cached in fcft. The calling application may cache it for as long as it likes, including after the font has been destroyed.

The text-run must be free:d with fcft_text_run_destroy().
