Font::TTF::PSNames - Utilities for Postscript glyph name processing
use Font::TTF::PSNames qw(parse lookup);
$name = lookup($uni);
$uni = parse($name);
lookup ( $usv [, $noAlt [, $noUni] ])
return the Adobe-recommended glyph name for a specific Unicode codepoint (integer). By default
names rather than "afiiNNNNN"
If $noAlt is true, "afii" and "SF" names are returned rather than "uniXXXX".
if $noUni is true, returns undef if it would have to resort to "uniXXXX" or "uXXXXXX"
style names. Essentially this represents a straight lookup in the Adobe-recommended list.
parse ( $glyphname )
Parse an Adobe-conformant glyph name, generating a Unicode codepoint sequence equivalent to the glyph (or
glyph components, should the name represent a ligature). In scalar context, returns a reference to an
array of Unicodes (decimal). Array is empty if the glyph name is non-conformant.
In list context, the first item returned is the same array reference as above. The second item
is a reference to an array containing the extensions (if any) present on the glyph name.
The '.' that precedes each extension is not included.
