25.1.14 Project 4 - Text

Drawing text with methods of the Cairo class is possible, as this project shows. As the text is available as a PDF file, it can be displayed immediately and printed out without any problems - an advantage that should not be underestimated. On the other hand, it would be very time-consuming to expand the project into a text editor. At the very least, you would have to insert a pagination and hyphenation or use a landscape format for longer lines of text.

Consider the project as a demonstration of the possibilities of drawing text on exactly one page with Cairo:
