Method and computer software program product for processing characters based on outline font

Image Number 17 for United States Patent #7239318.

A method and computer software product for processing outline fonts is described to skeletonize character fonts based on their outline data. The method may comprise: reading font data from an outline font dictionary that stores the outline data of an outline font, preparing element structures and constructing a graphic path; determining whether or not the element structures constitute another graphic path; determining whether or not, within the graphic path, there is another graphic path that is completely contained and has the same cyclic direction as the graphic path, if there is, then, deleting the other graphic path; and moving the element structures that constitute the graphic path by a predetermined distance to the direction of character width based on the character width of the outline font, thereby to output a plurality of line segments which effectively eliminates the character width of the outline font.
