Hi Brandon

Even that's not simple - freetype is essentially a framework for
writing font processors rather than a conventional C library[*]. Saner
perhaps is to write a C program using freetype to do the exact job you
have in mind, then bind to your C program.

Best wishes


[*} Probably why several people Including me have attempted a binding,
but no-one has delivered one.
