mfont_set_encoding(3) Set encoding of a font.


int mfont_set_encoding (MFont * font, MSymbol encoding_name, MSymbol repertory_name)

encoding_name is a symbol representing a charset that has the same encoding as the font.

repertory_name is Mnil or a symbol representing a charset that has the same repertory as the font. If it is Mnil, whether a specific character is supported by the font is asked to each font driver.


If the operation was successful, this function returns 0. Otherwise it returns -1 and assigns an error code to the external variable merror_code.
