About a year ago I began to port from java a runtime font parser for flash. It works for most .ttf and .otf fonts and I'm now making it an open source project as it is sitting on my desktop not doing much for over a year. I hope to see cool experiments with it where people attach physics to the points of the fonts or even move this into 3d applications. It's a fun creative way of playing with glyphs and shapes in flash. Sorry for the current state of the files.. I'm just trying to get them up for now. If your relatively well versed with code you should be able to start having lots of fun with this tool straight away.
PLEASE DO NOT use this as a real runtime font parser it should be used as a creative tool for curious/creative developers for a graphic/playful result. I believe this tool has incredible potential for creativity and play.
