This library was designed and developed by the NRSI (Non-Roman Script Initiative) within SIL International (www.sil.org) to act as a complement to other smart font rendering technologies with limited practical local extensability. Its purpose is to help meet the needs of a very large number of "minority language" communities for local extensibility of complex script behaviors.
The behavior of the SILGraphite rendering engine for a given writing system is specified through extra tables added to a TrueType font. These tables are generated by compiling a GDL (Graphite Description Language) source file into a font using grcompiler.
This package contains the headers and development libraries.
GRAPHITE ENGINE The Graphite smart font engine is the bit that takes a unicode string,font formatting information (features, size, etc.) and a font and returns a set of positioned glyphs. Graphite also does more than this, in that it can handle cursor tracking and interaction with the application for string selection, etc. In order to interact with the application or system Graphite is emb more»
