NAME

Imager::Handy - simple access to common functions

SYNOPSIS

  use Imager ':handy';
  my $color = NC(255, 0, 0);
  my $font = NF(1.0, 0, 0);

DESCRIPTION

If you use Imager with the :handy import tag, it will export a number of functions that can shorter your code.

NC
newcolor
newcolour

Create a new Imager::Color object, supplying any parameters to the new() method.

  my $color = NC('red');
NF
newfont

Create a new Imager::Font object, supplying any parameters to the new() method.

  my $font = NF(file => 'foo.ttf');

BUGS

NC() can be mostly replaced by supplying the color name or other description directly to the drawing method.
