t1lib 5.1.2 Library for generating bitmaps from Type 1 fonts

T1lib is a library for generating/rasterising bitmaps from Type 1 fonts. It is based on the code of the X11 rasteriser of the X11 project.

The bitmaps created by t1lib are returned in a data structure with type GLYPH. This special GLYPH-type is also used in the X11 window system to describe character bitmaps. It contains the bitmap data as well as some metric information. But t1lib is in itself entirely independent of the X11-system or any other graphical user interface.
