Hello, today i tried to play a little bit around with the possibility to load truetype fonts in Gd. But my quite simple attemps all end up with an "Out of memory!" message. Even with the perl debugger i can't realy examine whats going wrong. It's going down right after GD::Font->load("font.ttf"); My example code: #!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; use GD; print "Loading font..."; GD::Font->load("verdana.ttf"); print "done!"; And the output: ghandi@india:/tmp$ perl test.pl Out of memory! Loading font... Tried the exemple C-Code from libgd.org (http://www.libgd.org/Font function *gdImageStringFT) which has no problems with the corresponding font and renders my string correctly. So i assume it's not a problem of my libgd or libfreetype on my system but a problem inside the perl GD module. GD.pm Version: 2.41 libgd2-xpm Version: 2.0.36~rc1 libfreetype5 Version: 2.3.7-2 perl: This is perl, v5.10.0 built for x86_64-linux-gnu-thread-multi Distribution: Debian 4.0 Lenny AMD64 uname -a: Linux india 2.6.26-1-amd64 #1 SMP Wed Sep 10 15:31:12 UTC 2008 x86_64 GNU/Linux I can also confirm this bug with the same code and same error on another Debian machine: GD.pm Version:2.34-1 lbgd2-xpm Version: 2.0.34-1 libfreetype6 Version: 2.3.5-1+b1 perl: This is perl, v5.8.8 built for i486-linux-gnu-thread-multi Distribution: Debian 3.1 etch whith some installed lenny packages uname -a:Linux host.de 2.6.9-023stab048.4-smp #1 SMP Fri Jul 11 18:00:55 MSD 2008 i686 GNU/Linux Hopefully i can help out a little bit. If anymore information is needed, just ask for it. ;) Bye, Sven

Made complete bullshit. I should have read the manual more sensitive. Then i probably recognize that GD::Font->load() isn't meant to load TTF-Files. Please reject this bug with the famouse "RTFM!" :D
