NAMEFont::TTF::Coverage - Opentype coverage and class definition objects
DESCRIPTIONCoverage tables and class definition objects are virtually identical concepts in OpenType. Their difference comes purely in their storage. Therefore we can say that a coverage table is a class definition in which the class definition for each glyph is the corresponding index in the coverage table. The resulting data structure is that a Coverage table has the following fields:
A boolean to indicate whether this table is a coverage table (TRUE) or a class definition (FALSE)
- A hash of glyph ids against values (either coverage index or class value)
- The storage format used is given here, but is recalculated when the table is written out.
- A count of the elements in a coverage table for use with add. Each subsequent addition is added with the current count and increments the count.
- Maximum class value in a class table.
new($isCover [, vals])Creates a new coverage table or class definition table, depending upon the value of $isCover. if $isCover then vals may be a list of glyphs to include in order. If no $isCover, then vals is a hash of glyphs against class values.
read($fh)Reads the coverage/class table from the given file handle
out($fh, $state)Writes the coverage/class table to the given file handle. If $state is 1 then the output string is returned rather than being output to a filehandle.
$c->add($glyphid[, $class])Adds a glyph id to the coverage or class table. Returns the index or class number of the glyphid added.
$c->signatureReturns a vector of all the glyph ids covered by this coverage table or class
@map=$c->sortSorts the coverage table so that indexes are in ascending order of glyphid. Returns a map such that $map[$new_index]=$old_index.
$c->out_xml($context)Outputs this coverage/class in
