Class

NSGlyphGenerator

An NSGlyphGenerator object performs the initial, nominal glyph generation phase in the layout process.

Overview

The nominal glyph generation pass essentially generates one glyph per character; the typesetter may later make substitutions in the glyph stream, for example, changing an acute accent glyph followed by an “e” glyph into a single acute-accented “é” glyph.

NSGlyphGenerator communicates via the NSGlyphStorage protocol. An example of a class conforming to the protocol is NSLayoutManager.
