Declaration [src]

pango_shape (
  const char* text,
  int length,
  const PangoAnalysis* analysis,
  PangoGlyphString* glyphs

Description [src]

Convert the characters in text into glyphs.

Given a segment of text and the corresponding PangoAnalysis structure returned from pango_itemize(), convert the characters into glyphs. You may also pass in only a substring of the item from pango_itemize().

It is recommended that you use pango_shape_full() instead, since that API allows for shaping interaction happening across text item boundaries.

Note that the extra attributes in the analyis that is returned from pango_itemize() have indices that are relative to the entire paragraph, so you need to subtract the item offset from their indices before calling pango_shape().
