Return the font's ascender value.
$descender = $font->descender()
Return the font's descender value.

@names = $font->glyphNames()
Return the defined glyph names of the font.
$glNum = $font->glyphNum()
Return the number of defined glyph names of the font.
$uni = $font->uniByGlyph($char)
Return the unicode by glyph name.
$uni = $font->uniByEnc($char)
Return the Unicode by the font's encoding map.
$uni = $font->uniByMap($char)
Return the Unicode by the font's default map.
$char = $font->encByGlyph($glyph)
Return the character by the given glyph name of the font's encoding map.
$char = $font->encByUni($uni)
Return the character by the given Unicode of the font's encoding map.
$char = $font->mapByGlyph($glyph)
Return the character by the given glyph name of the font's default map.
$char = $font->mapByUni($uni)
Return the character by the given Unicode of the font's default map.
$name = $font->glyphByUni($unicode)
Return the glyph's name by the font's Unicode map. BEWARE: non-standard glyph-names are mapped onto the ms-symbol area (0xF000).
$name = $font->glyphByEnc($char)
Return the glyph's name by the font's encoding map.
$name = $font->glyphByMap($char)
Return the glyph's name by the font's default map.
$width = $font->wxByGlyph($glyph)
Return the glyph's width. This is a value, that when divided by 1000 and multiplied by the font size (height in points), gives the advance width to the next character's start. Typically, the width will be under 1000.
$width = $font->wxByUni($uni)
Return the Unicode character's width. This is a value, that when divided by 1000 and multiplied by the font size (height in points), gives the advance width to the next character's start. Typically, the width will be under 1000.
$width = $font->wxByEnc($char)
Return the character's width based on the current encoding. This is a value, that when divided by 1000 and multiplied by the font size (height in points), gives the advance width to the next character's start. Typically, the width will be under 1000.
$flag = $font->wxMissingByEnc($char)
Return true if the character's width (based on the current encoding) is supplied by "missing width" of font.
$width = $font->wxByMap($char)
Return the character's width based on the font's default encoding. This is a value, that when divided by 1000 and multiplied by the font size (height in points), gives the advance width to the next character's start. Typically, the width will be under 1000.
$wd = $font->width($text)
Return the width of $text as if it were at size 1. BEWARE: works only correctly if a proper Perl string is used, either in native or UTF-8 format (check utf8-flag).
@widths = $font->width_array($text)
Return (as an array) the widths of the words in $text as if they were at size 1.

$utf8string = $font->utfByStr($string)
Return the utf8-string from string based on the font's encoding map.
