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. */
