Using Traditional Chinese Fonts in DPS Programming

You can use Traditional Chinese fonts just as you use Roman fonts in DPS wrap definitions. The following sample code creates the above display:

defineps PSWDisplayText(char *text)
			/pointSize 50 def
			/Helvetica pointSize selectfont
			(Hello World) stringwidth pop 2 div neg 0 moveto
			(Hello World) show

			/cpSize 40 def
			/Kai-Medium cpSize selectfont
			(text) stringwidth pop 2 div neg pointSize neg moveto
			(text) show

You can tell PSWDisplayText(Chinese text) in a C program to display the designated Chinese text; for example, as shown below:
