<table align=center width="87%"><tr><td>
<p>This section describes the FreeType&nbsp;2 cache sub-system, which is used to limit the number of concurrently opened <a href="ft2-base_interface.html#FT_Face">FT_Face</a> and <a href="ft2-base_interface.html#FT_Size">FT_Size</a> objects, as well as caching information like character maps and glyph images while limiting their maximum memory usage.</p>
<p>Note that all types and functions begin with the &lsquo;FTC_&rsquo; prefix.</p>
<p>The cache is highly portable and thus doesn't know anything about the fonts installed on your system, or how to access them. This implies the following scheme:</p>
<p>First, available or installed font faces are uniquely identified by <a href="ft2-cache_subsystem.html#FTC_FaceID">FTC_FaceID</a> values, provided to the cache by the client. Note that the cache only stores and compares these values, and doesn't try to interpret them in any way.</p>
<p>Second, the cache calls, only when needed, a client-provided function to convert an <a href="ft2-cache_subsystem.html#FTC_FaceID">FTC_FaceID</a> into a new <a href="ft2-base_interface.html#FT_Face">FT_Face</a> object. The latter is then completely managed by the cache, including its termination through <a href="ft2-base_interface.html#FT_Done_Face">FT_Done_Face</a>. To monitor termination of face objects, the finalizer callback in the &lsquo;generic&rsquo; field of the <a href="ft2-base_interface.html#FT_Face">FT_Face</a> object can be used, which might also be used to store the <a href="ft2-cache_subsystem.html#FTC_FaceID">FTC_FaceID</a> of the face.</p>
<p>Clients are free to map face IDs to anything else. The most simple usage is to associate them to a (pathname,face_index) pair that is used to call <a href="ft2-base_interface.html#FT_New_Face">FT_New_Face</a>. However, more complex schemes are also possible.</p>
<p>Note that for the cache to work correctly, the face ID values must be <b>persistent</b>, which means that the contents they point to should not change at runtime, or that their value should not become invalid.</p>
<p>If this is unavoidable (e.g., when a font is uninstalled at runtime), you should call <a href="ft2-cache_subsystem.html#FTC_Manager_RemoveFaceID">FTC_Manager_RemoveFaceID</a> as soon as possible, to let the cache get rid of any references to the old <a href="ft2-cache_subsystem.html#FTC_FaceID">FTC_FaceID</a> it may keep internally. Failure to do so will lead to incorrect behaviour or even crashes.</p>
<p>To use the cache, start with calling <a href="ft2-cache_subsystem.html#FTC_Manager_New">FTC_Manager_New</a> to create a new <a href="ft2-cache_subsystem.html#FTC_Manager">FTC_Manager</a> object, which models a single cache instance. You can then look up <a href="ft2-base_interface.html#FT_Face">FT_Face</a> and <a href="ft2-base_interface.html#FT_Size">FT_Size</a> objects with <a href="ft2-cache_subsystem.html#FTC_Manager_LookupFace">FTC_Manager_LookupFace</a> and <a href="ft2-cache_subsystem.html#FTC_Manager_LookupSize">FTC_Manager_LookupSize</a>, respectively.</p>
<p>If you want to use the charmap caching, call <a href="ft2-cache_subsystem.html#FTC_CMapCache_New">FTC_CMapCache_New</a>, then later use <a href="ft2-cache_subsystem.html#FTC_CMapCache_Lookup">FTC_CMapCache_Lookup</a> to perform the equivalent of <a href="ft2-base_interface.html#FT_Get_Char_Index">FT_Get_Char_Index</a>, only much faster.</p>
<p>If you want to use the <a href="ft2-glyph_management.html#FT_Glyph">FT_Glyph</a> caching, call <a href="ft2-cache_subsystem.html#FTC_ImageCache">FTC_ImageCache</a>, then later use <a href="ft2-cache_subsystem.html#FTC_ImageCache_Lookup">FTC_ImageCache_Lookup</a> to retrieve the corresponding <a href="ft2-glyph_management.html#FT_Glyph">FT_Glyph</a> objects from the cache.</p>
<p>If you need lots of small bitmaps, it is much more memory efficient to call <a href="ft2-cache_subsystem.html#FTC_SBitCache_New">FTC_SBitCache_New</a> followed by <a href="ft2-cache_subsystem.html#FTC_SBitCache_Lookup">FTC_SBitCache_Lookup</a>. This returns <a href="ft2-cache_subsystem.html#FTC_SBitRec">FTC_SBitRec</a> structures, which are used to store small bitmaps directly. (A small bitmap is one whose metrics and dimensions all fit into 8-bit integers).</p>
<p>We hope to also provide a kerning cache in the near future.</p>

<p>The manager intentionally limits the total number of opened <a href="ft2-base_interface.html#FT_Face">FT_Face</a> and <a href="ft2-base_interface.html#FT_Size">FT_Size</a> objects to control memory usage.

<p>The manager is also used to cache &lsquo;nodes&rsquo; of various types while limiting their total memory usage.</p>
<p>All limitations are enforced by keeping lists of managed objects in most-recently-used order, and flushing old nodes to make room for new ones.</p>
