Has anyone ever thought of getting the FreeType library to to cinverted to a .bi to work in freebasic? This sounds like a very interesting library. Though I have no clue if this has been implemented yet.

http://gnuwin32.sourceforge.net/packages/freetype.htm

For it's main purpose to be used in openGL related applications.

Actually it's for a lot more than OpenGL apps. FreeType is THE font rendering library that 99% of Linux GUIs use.

I agree there should be bi files for it, but I'm too lazy.

True, I used this along with the jpeg lib to whip up a VC program to create thousands of images with custom text using some old Type1 fonts.

But I'm also too lazy..
