       Font::TTF::PSNames - Utilities for Postscript glyph name processing


         use Font::TTF::PSNames qw(parse lookup);
         $name = lookup($uni);
         $uni = parse($name);


   lookup ( $usv [, $noAlt [, $noUni] ])
       return the Adobe-recommended glyph name for a specific Unicode codepoint (integer). By
       default returns "uniXXXX" names rather than "afiiNNNNN" or "SFnnnnnn" names

       If $noAlt is true, "afii" and "SF" names are returned rather than "uniXXXX".

       if $noUni is true, returns undef if it would have to resort to "uniXXXX" or "uXXXXXX"
       style names. Essentially this represents a straight lookup in the Adobe-recommended list.

   parse ( $glyphname )
       Parse an Adobe-conformant glyph name, generating a Unicode codepoint sequence equivalent
       to the glyph (or glyph components, should the name represent a ligature). In scalar
       context, returns a reference to an array of Unicodes (decimal). Array is empty if the
       glyph name is non-conformant.  In list context, the first item returned is the same array
       reference as above. The second item is a reference to an array containing the extensions
       (if any) present on the glyph name.  The '.' that precedes each extension is not included.
