NAME ^

PDF::API2::Resource::Font::CoreFont - Module for using the 14 PDF built-in Fonts.

SYNOPSIS ^

    #
    use PDF::API2;
    #
    $pdf = PDF::API2->new;
    $cft = $pdf->corefont('Times-Roman');
    #

METHODS ^

$font = PDF::API2::Resource::Font::CoreFont->new $pdf, $fontname, %options

Returns a corefont object.

Valid %options are:

-encode ... changes the encoding of the font from its default. See perl's Encode for the supported values.

-pdfname ... changes the reference-name of the font from its default. The reference-name is normally generated automatically and can be retrived via $pdfname=$font->name.

$font = PDF::API2::Resource::Font::CoreFont->new_api $api, $fontname, %options

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

PDF::API2::Resource::Font::CoreFont->loadallfonts()

"Requires in" all fonts available as corefonts.
