Introduction

FTGL is a library for rendering fonts in an OpenGL environment


Installation

If you haven't done this yet, install cabal-install (see also "How to install a Cabal package"), then install FTGL with the command:

 cabal install --global ftgl

The "cabal install" command automatically installs all necessary packages. If you don't have the access rights to install the software globally, you can leave out the "--global" flag.


Example

See the FTGL 1.0 announcement
