33 /* A small technical note regarding automatic hinting in order to */
34 /* clarify this module interface. */
35 /* */
36 /* An automatic hinter might compute two kinds of data for a given face: */
37 /* */
38 /* - global hints: Usually some metrics that describe global properties */
39 /* of the face. It is computed by scanning more or less */
40 /* aggressively the glyphs in the face, and thus can be */
41 /* very slow to compute (even if the size of global */
42 /* hints is really small). */
43 /* */
44 /* - glyph hints: These describe some important features of the glyph */
45 /* outline, as well as how to align them. They are */
46 /* generally much faster to compute than global hints. */
47 /* */
48 /* The current FreeType auto-hinter does a pretty good job while */
49 /* performing fast computations for both global and glyph hints. */
50 /* However, we might be interested in introducing more complex and */
51 /* powerful algorithms in the future, like the one described in the John */
52 /* D. Hobby paper, which unfortunately requires a lot more horsepower. */
53 /* */
54 /* Because a sufficiently sophisticated font management system would */
55 /* typically implement an LRU cache of opened face objects to reduce */
56 /* memory usage, it is a good idea to be able to avoid recomputing */
57 /* global hints every time the same face is re-opened. */
58 /* */
59 /* We thus provide the ability to cache global hints outside of the face */
60 /* object, in order to speed up font re-opening time. Of course, this */
61 /* feature is purely optional, so most client programs won't even notice */
62 /* it. */
63 /* */
64 /* I initially thought that it would be a good idea to cache the glyph */
65 /* hints too. However, my general idea now is that if you really need */
66 /* to cache these too, you are simply in need of a new font format, */
67 /* where all this information could be stored within the font file and */
68 /* decoded on the fly. */
