DESCRIPTION ^

The GD.Text plugin provides an interface to the GD::Text module. It allows attributes of strings such as width and height in pixels to be computed.

See GD::Text for more details. See Template::Plugin::GD::Text::Align and Template::Plugin::GD::Text::Wrap for plugins that allow you to render aligned or wrapped text in GD images.
