Re: How to read fonts in python

Hello all,
I am writing a program to convert indic true type font to unicode. For
which i need to know how to read the any file i.e Text, Doc, Excel file
in python and identify the font used in which that file is written. So
that using Map file can convert the file in unicode.
You are getting too ambitious. Text files don't have any font
information associated with them. Not only that, but the encoding of
Unicode character data is independent of the font used to render the
readable glyphs as text.

This makes it look as though you don't really know what you are doing.
Perhaps you should start more slowly, and try explaining the real problem.

I'm not even sure what "converting a font to Unicode" means, so you
might start by explaining that.
