I have been trying to create a PHP script to extract the information included in a font file. So far I have managed to get the information from the "name" table with success.
The next step would be to list the glyphs of the font. But as for now, I feel a little confused about where this information is located in the font file. If I consider this thread : http://typophile.com/node/16695#comment-99516
I quote : "the glyph names are stored in the "post" table"
This is the first question in my mind, to make sure where this information is.
But to be completely honest, I don't get the structure of the "post" table, as seen here.
What I don't really understand right now is the type of data (Fixed, and FWord) even though it's explained here. As I use the unpack() function to get this information, I should specify a format, and this is where I'm confused.
If anyone has any information about my questions, I would be really grateful :)
