Subject: Re: Fontsize
From: Greg Haerr (greg_at_censoft.com)
Date: 2003-02-26


: It would of course at least require double the amount of reserved memory
for
fonts. At least, because people will typicly assume that this other font
would be larger than the first/normal one...

The current requirement to have statically-defined areas
for the font code isn't well suited to [re]loading multiple
fonts and using minimum RAM. It would be nice to have
some sort of very basic bss memory allocation scheme
(even if it were initialized/sized at boot to some max value).

: And oh, our bitmap code don't support bitmaps higher than 16 pixels so
fonts
bigger than that will demand even more improvemens.

I thought we had arbitrary x,y,w,h capability - how does the
logo get displayed > 16 high, for instance?

Regards,

Greg
