Declaration [src]

pango_script_iter_new (
  const char* text,
  int length

Description [src]

Create a new PangoScriptIter, used to break a string of Unicode text into runs by Unicode script.

No copy is made of text, so the caller needs to make sure it remains valid until the iterator is freed with pango_script_iter_free().

Available since: 1.4

Return value

Type: PangoScriptIter

The new script iterator, initialized to point at the first range in the text, which should be freed with pango_script_iter_free(). If the string is empty, it will point at an empty range.
