Detailed Description

It is often necessary in Pango to determine if a particular font can represent a particular character, and also how well it can represent that character. The PangoCoverage is a data structure that is used to represent that information.

Structures

PangoCoverage

The PangoCoverage structure represents a map from Unicode characters to PangoCoverageLevel. It is an opaque structure with no public fields.

Enums and Flags

PangoCoverageLevel

Used to indicate how well a font can represent a particular Unicode character point for a particular script.

none

The character is not representable with the font.

fallback

The character is represented in a way that may be comprehensible but is not the correct graphical form. For instance, a Hangul character represented as a a sequence of Jamos, or a Latin transliteration of a Cyrillic word.

approximate

The character is represented as basically the correct graphical form, but with a stylistic variant inappropriate for the current script.

exact

The character is represented as the correct graphical form.
