VERSION

This document describes version 0.06 of PostScript::Report::Font, released November 30, 2013 as part of PostScript-Report version 0.13.

DESCRIPTION

PostScript::Report::Font represents a font in a PostScript::Report. You won't deal directly with Font objects unless you are writing your own Components.

You construct a Font object by calling the report's "get_font" in PostScript::Report method.

ATTRIBUTES

font

This is the PostScript name of the font to use.

id

This is the PostScript identifier for the scaled font (assigned by the document).

metrics

This is a PostScript::File::Metrics object providing information about the dimensions of the font.

size

This is the size of the font in points.

METHODS

width

  $font->width($text)

This returns the width of $text (in points) if it were printed in this font. $text should not contain newlines.

wrap

  @lines = $font->wrap($width, $text)

This wraps $text into lines of no more than $width points. If $text contains newlines, they will also cause line breaks.
