int get_font_range_begin(FONT *f, int range)


This function allows you to find out the start of a specific character range for a font. You can pass -1 for the `range' parameter if you want to know the start of the whole font range, or a number from 0 to (but not including) get_font_ranges(f) to get the start of a specific character range in the font. Example:

   printf("The font has a character range of %d - %d\n",
          get_font_range_begin(font, -1),
          get_font_range_end(font, -1));

Return Value

Returns the first character in the font range, or -1 if that information is not available.
