It can be used in graphics libraries, font conversion tools, text image generation tools, display servers, etc.It is a font service and doesn't provide APIs to perform higher-level features like text layout or graphics processing.FreeType 2 supports the following font formats:TrueType fonts (and collections)Type 1 fontsCID-keyed Type 1 fontsCFF fontsOpenType fonts (both TrueType and CFF variants)SFNT-based bitmap fontsX11 PCF fontsWindows FNT fontsBDF fonts (including anti-aliased ones)PFR fontsType 42 fontsHere are some key features of "FreeType":dlTE FreeType 2 provides a simple and easy-to-use API to access font content in a uniform way, independently of the file format. Additionally, some format-specific APIs can be used to access special data in the font file.dlTE Unlike most comparable libraries, FreeType 2 supports scalable font formats like TrueType or Type 1 natively and can return the outline data (and control instructions/hints) to client applications.dlTE The design of FreeType 2 is based on modules that can be either linked statically to the library at compile time, or loaded on demand at runtime. Modules are used to support specific font formats, or even new glyph image formats!dlTE FreeType 2 was written with embedded systems in mind. This means that it doesn't use static writable data (i.e., it can be run from ROM directly), and that client applications can provide their own memory manager and I/O stream implementation.dlTE The latter allows to easily read from ROM-based, compressed or remote font files with the same API. Several stream implementations can be used concurrently with a single FreeType 2 instance.dlTE From a given glyph outline, FreeType 2 is capable of producing a high-quality monochrome bitmap, or anti-aliased pixmap, using 256 levels of d¬DSdu?grayd-deOao. This is much better than the 5 levels used by Windows 9x/98/NT/2000 or FreeType 1.dlTE FreeType 2 supports all the character mappings defined by the TrueType and OpenType specification. It is also capable of automatically synthetizing a Unicode charmap from Type 1 fonts, which puts an end to the painful d¬DSdu?encoding translationd-deOao headache common with this format.dlTE The FreeType 2 core API provides simple functions to access advanced information like glyph names or kerning data.dlTE A full-featured and efficient TrueType bytecode interpreter. The engine is able to produce excellent output at small point sizes. This component has been extremely difficult to get right, due to the ambiguous and misleading TrueType specification. However, we now match Windows and Mac qualities. Please read our patents page to learn more about some issues when using the interpreter.dlTE For those who don't need or want to use the bytecode interpreter for TrueType fonts, we developed our own automatic hinter module. It is also used by other scalable formats.dlTE FreeType 2 provides information that is often not available from other similar font engines, like kerning distances, glyph names, vertical metrics, etc.dlTE Due to its modular design, it is easy to enhance the library to provide additional format-specific information through optional APIs (as an example, an optional API is provided to retrieve SFNT tables from TrueType and OpenType fonts).dlTE FreeType 2 provides its own caching subsystem since release 2.0.1. It can be used to cache either face instances or glyph images efficiently.
