MyFon is a 3D mesh generator for letters, as for characters strings not
for missives. It uses freetype to obtain contour data, and triangle.c or
libgts for triangulation of contours.
Currently, MyFon can write simple POVRAY, 3DG1, VRML1, and gts formats.
MyFon is composed by library, command line front end, and Motif

Why does one need meshes from strings?
ANS: meshes can be easily deformed and one can apply mesh operations
as sum, difference,etc. As output is triangulated, new formats are very
simple to implement.
1-libgts (libgts requires glib)
5-OpenGL/Mesa with widget support
For library and command line front end, one will only need 1&2. For
graphical GUI, one will
need 3,4,&5. NOTICE: Motif version was only tested under 24bits color
