NAME

SYNOPSIS

   my $fontname = 'Arial';

   find_ttf( $fontname);

   my $fontdir  = '/home/myself/fonts';
   my $fontdir2 = '/home/myself/.fonts';
   
   push @LEOCHARRE::FontFind::PATH, $fontdir, $fontdir2;
   
   LEOCHARRE::FontFind::_cache_reset();   

   my $abs_font = find_ttf( $fontname, $fontdir, $fontdir2 );

   

DESCRIPTION

Why?

Because I was rendering text with imagemagick, and what was taking 3 seconds each time was looking up for fonts. This makes it immediate.
