Description David 2007-10-29 09:04:41 UTC
The description of the function FcConfigGetCache states: "Returns the name of the file used to store per-user font information". But it returns a null pointer, while it should return the name of the cache file.

This is correct; fontconfig now no longer uses a per-user file to store font information, instead it stores all font information in per-directory files.

I've updated the documentation to reflect the status of this function.
