Now I am getting a rough idea of how things are connected in the working of
I am thinking of some possible ways in providing multiple font support,
first one can be to use the available converters for conversion of font
formats, the second one can be to use the Freetype approach by modifying
`FT_DRIVER_H` , `FT_OPEN_DRIVER` to support the tex font drivers as well,
another can be the VFlib approach i.e to define a new font database file on
the lines of vflibcap and then using the Kpathsea library for searching TEX
I ruled out the first one as we must convert many font files in advance and
also we don't have converters available for all types of fonts. I am
currently more inclined towards the VFlib approach.
I am still trying to figure out the approaches and I wonder if I am going
in the right direction?
I am excited to work with Freetype, it's really fascinating how much work
is required to render fonts.
Thank You
