NAME

PDF::API2::Resource::UniFont - Unicode Font Support

METHODS

$font = PDF::API2::Resource::UniFont->new $pdf, @fontspecs, %options

Returns a uni-font object.

FONTSPECS: fonts can be registered using the following hash-ref:

    {
        font   => $fontobj,     # the font to be registered
        blocks => $blockspec,   # the unicode blocks, the font is being registered for
        codes  => $codespec,    # the unicode codepoints, -"-
    }

BLOCKSPECS:

    [
        $block1, $block3,    # register font for block 1 + 3
        [$blockA,$blockZ],   # register font for blocks A .. Z
    ]
    

CODESPECS:

    [
        $cp1, $cp3,          # register font for codepoint 1 + 3
        [$cpA,$cpZ],         # register font for codepoints A .. Z
    ]
    

NOTE: if you want to register a font for the entire unicode space (ie. U+0000 .. U+FFFF), then simply specify a font-object without the hash-ref.

Valid %options are:

  '-encode' ... changes the encoding of the font from its default.
    (see "perldoc Encode" for a list of valid tags)
$font = PDF::API2::Resource::UniFont->new_api $api, $name, %options

Returns a uni-font object. This method is different from 'new' that it needs an PDF::API2-object rather than a Text::PDF::File-object.
