What is it?Not much yet! :) It is intended to be a library which allows manipulation and generation of Postscript files as well as font management.
Currently it supports:
The whole idea here is to create a library to facilitate printing on the Linux/Unix platform. Printing on this platform seems to come down to generation of postscript files. Right now I am concentrating on fonts and more specifically X fonts and Postscript fonts and their relationship. With this library you will be able to list fonts available for printing under Postscript and/or display under X, and map between the two.
Further in the future, I plan to add functions to "draw" into PostScript files.
Current StatusCurrently, I am jamming out code with one hand while grabbing others code with the other hand, all the while trying to develop a coherent API.
I desperately need help with Unicode, font encodings, and drawing under Postscript. Someone with experience with Postscript to design the drawing API would really be great. However, any help would be appreciated.
