in seeking to embellish some text and lines output I have,
I though about using SVG.
On a quick glance, there are a number of libraries out that seemed to have proved their stability over the years, cairo, pango, librsvg, but they are part of farily big projects and of course you surrender a little to portability if you decide to depend on them.
Of course, it's possible to just generate the XML-SVG text within the C prog itself, but on that count you doing a little wheel inventing.
Has anybody given this a think? Any comments? Thanks in adv!
