pango bool

Default Command lineScope Available in
1nonegenerationabcm2ps only

Enable or disable PostScript output with pango.

This command works only when abcm2ps is compiled with pango/freetype support.

The pango library is used to render texts containing non-ASCII characters.

It searches automatically for a replacement font when a character does not exist in the current font and it handles correctly the width of the strings.

When pango is active, the %%glyph commands are not used.

Trick: this parameter may be set to '2' to force pango to be used for all texts.
