NAME

       extract_font_range  - Extracts a range of characters from a font. Allegro game programming
       library.

SYNOPSIS

       #include <allegro.h>

       FONT *extract_font_range(FONT *f, int begin, int end)

DESCRIPTION

       This function extracts a character range from a font and returns a new font that  contains
       only  the  range  of  characters selected by this function. You can pass -1 for either the
       lower or upper bound if you want to select all characters from the start or to the end  of
       the font.  Example:

          FONT *myfont;
          FONT *capitals;
          FONT *fontcopy;
          ...
          /* Create a font of only capital letters */
          capitals = extract_font_range(myfont, 'A', 'Z');

          /* Create a copy of the font */
          fontcopy = extract_font_range(myfont, -1, -1);
          ...
          destroy_font(capitals);
          destroy_font(fontcopy);

RETURN VALUE

       Returns  a pointer to the new font or NULL on error. Remember that you are responsible for
       destroying the font when you are finished with it to avoid memory leaks.
