Without knowing anything about fonts, I innocently read an article on Postscript/Truetype Bezier curves.
The first picture in the article shows the letter Q, and it's Bezier control points. I'd like to look at more letters (also greek letters) and their Bezier construction.
I therefore installed the program fontforge and loaded a letter from the computer modern font (I belive) in
This visualization is perhaps technically useful, but not very pleasing. So, I wonder, could it be done inside TeX? Maybe using TikZ
Clarification for this option: The letter can be drawn with TikZ as well, but I'm more interested in a nice visualization of the control points.
It surely isn't easy, as the font is stored in a binary format. Perhaps it can be converted?
- @g.kov shows a nice visualization using Asymptote.
- I modified Andrew Stacy's script from this question, and am quite happy with it. See below.
