Font

Structure that contains the necessary data to generate a bitmap Font Texture from an .TTF or .OTF font file. Fonts are generally used to draw on screen either in two or three dimension. Coupled with a signed distance field they can be used to draw smooth anti-aliased text that look good from every distance using the Alpha-Tested Magnification for Vector Textures and Special Effects technique.
