    cairo text / mirrored text

    This one is a longshot:
    I am loading fonts into cairo using freetype. It's all going very smoothly, but I need to mirror the text vertically. Any suggestions? I though about trying to modify the text extents, maybe reversing the y values, but i can't find their member variables. Anybody? Thanks.

    Do fonts respect the CTM?

    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.

    store the characters in an array or any ADT and start printing from the last upwards it should do the job. hope it helps.

    There is no 'printing' going on, I'm loading vector font face files and rasterizing them onto a canvas.
