FontReader converts TrueType font into flash graphics shapes.
It’s a porting of the TypeCast Java library into actionscript 3, with some modifications in order to fit actionscript needs.
It can read a .tff font file and extracts all the available informations from the file, inclusing the Glyph informations. Once available, the glyph table gives the necessary informations to create the glyph outline in flash, using the standard graphics API. Moreover the glyphs can be modified using the curves and lines handles which are being created for every glyph.
