OpenGL BDF Font Engine

    Discuss This!


Noticed a link over on OpenGL.org to a freely available OpenGL font engine called glBDF. Here's a description from the library's web site:

" glBDF is a library which is used to output bitmapped text to the screen under OpenGL. It reads the BDF format (Bitmap Distributed Format) which is a plain text file format (Ascii), commonly used on Unix'ish systems in programs like Xwindow. The library itself uses no glAux calls and conforms to the ANSI standard, because of this, glBDF can easily be ported to various platforms. It is freely available for both commercial and non-commercial use. "
