Inside the fastest font renderer in the world
Raph Levien

Hey Raph. This might be blasphemic to ask, but how well (or badly) would such an implementation fare on a garbage-collected language like OCaml? Do you have a rough idea how much more costly things get? (Assuming OCaml’s GC is world-class).

Never touched font rendering before. Sorry if the question doesn’t make sense. Thanks for the article!
