FontRenderer

14 August 2012

Earlier this month I published the tool “FontRenderer” (see project’s page) on the Google Code platform, http://code.google.com/p/fontrenderer/.

FontRenderer converts a text to polygonal data in “.line” format using the outline of a specified font. Feel free to download a copy at http://code.google.com/p/fontrenderer/downloads/. Note, that the actual output generated depends on the font file used, and thus the simplicity is neither guaranteed nor checked. So far I can tell that simplicity can be assumed for high-quality-fonts. Additionally, Binaries for Windows (32 Bit) are provided at above location.

Create tar archives with PHP

24 November 2011

My own tar implementation has recently been completed, written in PHP and basically defining a simple interface for adding files and folders. My implementation provides classes to pack a bunch of files or even complete folders into an archive which then is printed to stdout, i.e., in the context of a web application downloaded by the user.

The code can be obtained from my projects page.
