NAME

       al_load_ttf_font - Allegro 5 API

SYNOPSIS

              #include <allegro5/allegro_ttf.h>

              ALLEGRO_FONT *al_load_ttf_font(char const *filename, int size, int flags)

DESCRIPTION

       Loads  a  TrueType font from a file using the FreeType library.  Quoting from the FreeType
       FAQ this means support for many different font formats:

       TrueType, OpenType, Type1, CID, CFF, Windows FON/FNT, X11 PCF, and others

       The size parameter determines the size the font will be rendered at, specified in  pixels.
       The  standard  font  size  is measured in units per EM, if you instead want to specify the
       size as the total height of glyphs in pixels, pass it as a negative value.

              Note: If you want to display text at multiple sizes, load the font  multiple  times
              with different size parameters.

       The following flags are supported:

       · ALLEGRO_TTF_NO_KERNING - Do not use any kerning even if the font file supports it.

       · ALLEGRO_TTF_MONOCHROME  - Load as a monochrome font (which means no anti-aliasing of the
         font is done).

       · ALLEGRO_TTF_NO_AUTOHINT - Disable the Auto Hinter which is enabled by default  in  newer
         versions of FreeType.  Since: 5.0.6, 5.1.2
