       Font::TTF::PSNames - Utilities for Postscript glyph name	processing

	 use Font::TTF::PSNames	qw(parse lookup);
	 $name = lookup($uni);
	 $uni =	parse($name);

   lookup ( $usv [, $noAlt [, $noUni] ])
       return the Adobe-recommended glyph name for a specific Unicode
       codepoint (integer). By default returns "uniXXXX" names rather than
       "afiiNNNNN" or "SFnnnnnn" names

       If $noAlt is true, "afii" and "SF" names	are returned rather than

       if $noUni is true, returns undef	if it would have to resort to
       "uniXXXX" or "uXXXXXX" style names. Essentially this represents a
       straight	lookup in the Adobe-recommended	list.

   parse ( $glyphname )
       Parse an	Adobe-conformant glyph name, generating	a Unicode codepoint
       sequence	equivalent to the glyph	(or glyph components, should the name
       represent a ligature). In scalar	context, returns a reference to	an
       array of	Unicodes (decimal). Array is empty if the glyph	name is	non-
       conformant.  In list context, the first item returned is	the same array
       reference as above. The second item is a	reference to an	array
       containing the extensions (if any) present on the glyph name.  The '.'
       that precedes each extension is not included.
