NAMEFont::TTF::GSUB - Module support for the GSUB table in conjunction with TTOpen
GSUBsubtables in relation to Ttopen tables. Due to the variety of different lookup types, the data structures are not all that straightforward, although I have tried to make life easy for myself when using this!
INSTANCE VARIABLESThe structure of a
GSUBtable is the same as that given in Font::TTF::Ttopen. Here we give some of the semantics specific to
This is a string taking one of 4 values indicating the nature of the information
in the ACTIONarray of the rule:
- The action contains a string of glyphs to replace the match string by
- The action array contains a list of offsets and lookups to run, in order, on the matched string
- The action array is an unordered set of optional replacements for the matched glyph. The application should make the selection somehow.
The action array is empty (in fact there is no rule array for this type of
rule) and the ADJUSTvalue should be added to the glyph id to find the replacement glyph id value
The action array is a list of replacement glyphs in coverage order. This ACTION_TYPEis used only for Type 8 Reverse Chaining lookups which, by design, are single glyph substitution.
This indicates which type of information the various MATCHarrays (MATCH, PRE, POST) hold in the rule:
- The array holds a string of glyph ids which should match exactly
- The array holds a sequence of class definitions which each glyph should correspondingly match to
- The array holds offsets to coverage tables
CORRESPONDANCE TO LAYOUT TYPESThe following table gives the values for
MATCH_TYPEfor each of the 12 different lookup types found in the
1.1 1.2 2 3 4 5.1 5.2 5.3 6.1 6.2 6.3 8 ACTION_TYPE o g g a g l l l l l l r MATCH_TYPE g g c o g c o o
Hopefully, the rest of the uses of the variables should make sense from this table.
$t->read_sub($fh, $lookup, $index)Asked by the superclass to read in from the given file the indexth subtable from lookup number lookup. The file is positioned ready for the read.
$t->extensionReturns the table type number for the extension table
$t->out_sub($fh, $lookup, $index)Passed the filehandle to output to, suitably positioned, the lookup and subtable index, this function outputs the subtable to $fh at that point.
