bug 105 deals with truetype tables and otlayout tables. Sometimes, it's
necessary to tell whether a font is truetype, type1, or cid-keyed font (or any
other type supported). For instance, in Mozilla
(http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=217719), we want to tell whether
'Symbol' font installed on the system is T1 or TTF.
The thread beginning with the above article has some useful information about
font type ID.
added me to CC. Thread looks interesting, will look for/at this func.
I've added a 'fontformat' entry which just uses the FT_Get_X11_Font_Format
function results directly (when available).
I get 'BDF', 'PCF', 'Type 1' or 'TrueType' for the fonts I have on my machine.
