(PHP 3 >= 3.0.9, PHP 4, PHP 5)
Make a copy of an already loaded font for further modification
( resource fontindex )
Use this function if you need make further modifications to the
font, for example extending/condensing, slanting it or changing
its character encoding vector, but need to keep the original
along as well. Note that the font you want to copy must be one
obtained using imagepsloadfont(), not a font
that is itself a copied one. You can although make modifications
to it before copying.
If you use this function, you must free the
fonts obtained this way yourself and in reverse order. Otherwise
your script will hang.
In the case everything went right, a valid font index will be
returned and can be used for further purposes. Otherwise the
function returns FALSE and prints a message describing what went
Note: This function is only available
if PHP is compiled using --with-t1lib[=DIR].
