cppfontconfig – Simple C++ interface into fontconfig

Lately I’ve been trying to learn how to use (and I mean *really* use) the open source font stack. Since I tend to greatly prefer c++ over c, as part of the process of learning these libraries I figured I’d workout API wrappers. Since the font stack libraries are generally object oriented, I figured a C++ wrapper around these would be easy to accomplish.

As a start, I wrote cppfontconfig, a C++ wrapper around font config.

git:// (public git access).

I’m not sure if the design is good or if it’s even useful, I guess we’ll see.
