First of all thank you for your quick answer,
and excuse me for my one in late :-)
>> That's very nice... I'm curious as to what you are developing.
Basically there is a Display system based on a Arm processor and
embedded Linux O.S. I have developed in C (using DirectFB API library)
primitive functions to draw all primitive graphic figures (ellipse,
stroked lines, all types of ellipse arcs, etc.) to be compliant with ISOBUS
spec.. ISOBUS is a standard of rules to be applied in some display
used in different applications.
This was my first experience using DirectFB and programming for graphic
displays: I liked it although bit complicated in some processes.
>> You can try to get me to add oblique and bold and bold-oblique to Everson
It could be great and surely very interesting:-) Moreover I don't know, I
have no idea what
language, script, process and so on are used to do it... Please, could sent
some links where find info?
Now (about 4 month ago) I decide to work free lance after spent about 10
working as employee. I'm italian (like surely you'll be note :) ) and
electronic engineer graduate. In italy situation is not so easy... Anyway I
have different works for the moment,
but if I'll find enough free time I'll try first to know about font and then
possibily help you :)
Have a good week end.
