DESCRIPTION

This class is used to print to STDOUT the coordinates of each node of a page layout. It is written both for debugging and as a minimal example of a renderer.

GLOBALS

FUNCTIONS

Calls the superclass constructor, and initializes the ASCII PDF page.
$self->renderText($string)
Prints the characters of the screen to our virtual ASCII framebuffer.
$self->toString()
Serializes the framebuffer into a single string that can be easily printed.
