type outlines and general addon question


This is my first post to the forum. Learning openframeworks has been a great experience so far. It has really helped bridge my interest into C++ and I really appreciate all of the work that has gone into it so far. I have been mucking about through various libraries and I have a question about the freetype library. How would I grab the font outlines themselves? So that I could then draw them myself using my own drawing routines etc.

I thought about trying to grab this myself, but as I started to look into it I couldn’t find how to access it. I just thought I would post before I dive into freetype. The last time that I ran into this was with the creEPS library and I found this…

//the creeps object is left public
//if people want to use more than the features
//ofxVectorGraphics implements
CreEPS creeps;

Which was great!

thanks for any insight before I start diving in,
