Description [src]

struct PangoGlyphItemIter {
  PangoGlyphItem* glyph_item;
  const gchar* text;
  int start_glyph;
  int start_index;
  int start_char;
  int end_glyph;
  int end_index;
  int end_char;

A PangoGlyphItemIter is an iterator over the clusters in a PangoGlyphItem.

The forward direction of the iterator is the logical direction of text. That is, with increasing start_index and start_char values. If glyph_item is right-to-left (that is, if glyph_item->item->analysis.level is odd), then start_glyph decreases as the iterator moves forward. Moreover, in right-to-left cases, start_glyph is greater than end_glyph.

An iterator should be initialized using either pango_glyph_item_iter_init_start() or pango_glyph_item_iter_init_end(), for forward and backward iteration respectively, and walked over using any desired mixture of pango_glyph_item_iter_next_cluster() and pango_glyph_item_iter_prev_cluster().

A common idiom for doing a forward iteration over the clusters is:

PangoGlyphItemIter cluster_iter;
gboolean have_cluster;

for (have_cluster = pango_glyph_item_iter_init_start (&cluster_iter,
                                                      glyph_item, text);
     have_cluster = pango_glyph_item_iter_next_cluster (&cluster_iter))

Note that text is the start of the text for layout, which is then indexed by glyph_item->item->offset to get to the text of glyph_item. The start_index and end_index values can directly index into text. The start_glyph, end_glyph, start_char, and end_char values however are zero-based for the glyph_item. For each cluster, the item pointed at by the start variables is included in the cluster while the one pointed at by end variables is not.

None of the members of a PangoGlyphItemIter should be modified manually.
