ABSTRACT

DEPRECATED Constants for use with Gnome2::Print::Font

DESCRIPTION

NOTICE NOTICE NOTICE NOTICE NOTICE NOTICE NOTICE NOTICE NOTICE NOTICE

This module has been deprecated by the Gtk-Perl project. This means that the module will no longer be updated with security patches, bug fixes, or when changes are made in the Perl ABI. The Git repo for this module has been archived (made read-only), it will no longer possible to submit new commits to it. You are more than welcome to ask about this module on the Gtk-Perl mailing list, but our priorities going forward will be maintaining Gtk-Perl modules that are supported and maintained upstream; this module is neither.

Since this module is licensed under the LGPL v2.1, you may also fork this module, if you wish, but you will need to use a different name for it on CPAN, and the Gtk-Perl team requests that you use your own resources (mailing list, Git repos, bug trackers, etc.) to maintain your fork going forward.

Similarily to Pango, in order to effectively use Gnome2::Print::Font you need a few constants that are not supplied by the type system or by other means.

This module exports all of those extra constants when you load it. They use the fully-prefixed names from the C documentation.

EXPORT

GnomeFontWeight is an enumeration, but it's not registered inside the Glib type system:

  GNOME_FONT_LIGHTEST
  GNOME_FONT_EXTRA_LIGHT
  GNOME_FONT_THIN
  GNOME_FONT_LIGHT
  GNOME_FONT_BOOK
  GNOME_FONT_REGULAR
  GNOME_FONT_MEDIUM
  GNOME_FONT_SEMI
  GNOME_FONT_DEMI
  GNOME_FONT_BOLD
  GNOME_FONT_HEAVY
  GNOME_FONT_EXTRABOLD
  GNOME_FONT_BLACK
  GNOME_FONT_EXTRABLACK
  GNOME_FONT_HEAVIEST

These weights are also available without importing this module, using Gnome2::Print::Font->weight, e.g.:

  Gnome2::Print::Font->bold;

BUGS

This module shouldn't exist, but some parts of the API just aren't clean.

This stuff is hardcoded directly from the headers of libgnomeprint 2.2.3
