PHP Manual :: imagepsencodefont



imagepsbbox || imagepsextendfont || GD and Image Functions || PHP Manual

(PHP 4, PHP 5)

imagepsencodefontChange the character encoding vector of a font

Warning

This function was REMOVED in PHP 7.0.0.

Description

bool imagepsencodefont ( resource $font_index , string $encodingfile )

Loads a character encoding vector from a file and changes the fonts encoding vector to it. As a PostScript fonts default vector lacks most of the character positions above 127, you'll definitely want to change this if you use a language other than English.

If you find yourself using this function all the time, a much better way to define the encoding is to set ps.default_encoding in the configuration file to point to the right encoding file and all fonts you load will automatically have the right encoding.

Parameters

font_index

A font resource, returned by imagepsloadfont().

encodingfile

The exact format of this file is described in T1libs documentation. T1lib comes with two ready-to-use files, IsoLatin1.enc and IsoLatin2.enc.

Return Values

Returns TRUE on success or FALSE on failure.

Examples

Example #1 imagepsencodefont() example

<?php
// Load a .pfb font file
$font imagepsloadfont('./px3l.pfb');

// Tell T1lib to use ISO Latin 1 encoding
imagepsencode($font'./IsoLatin1.enc');

// Do any operations with the font here

// Free the font from memory
imagepsfreefont($font);
?>

Changelog

Version Description
7.0.0 T1Lib support was removed from PHP, thrus removing this function.
