My curiousity has gotten the better of me and I've decided to peek behind the curtain to find out what level of programming skill is required to build a working font editor.
There is too much I rely on Fontographer and too steep of a transition curve for me to use Font Lab. So I figure it's worth looking into building my own.
Since I'm already a hard core FOG user, I can't help but want to base my origins on this application and improve it as I have always wanted to see it improved.
However due to my own technical limitations, I have always assumed making a font editor is heavy business until I found out about RealBasic. I have only dabbled in this program a few times and I'm not sure what it's capabilites are but I'd be interested in finding out if it has the ability to cobble something like this together.
Are there any programmer types on the list that have any insight?
