SignWriting Image Server for web servers, Windows, and Mac
The column.php script produces an image. The columns.php script is an
example HTML page. The iframe may be your best option, but here are 2
First, the column.php script takes an optional "col" attribute. By
default, "col" is equal to 1, the first column. If you knew how many
columns were in the sign text, you could duplicate the image code with
the same BSW code and only need to modify the "col" attribute. For
example, if a sign text had 3 columns, you could use 3 images, all with
the same BSW, but add "&col=2" for the second column and
"&col=3" for the third.
Another option is to code in PHP. Open the "columns.php" script and
take a look. It's not very long. The 2 most important lines are...
$st = new SignText($bsw,$size,$height);
$cols = $st->getCols();
The $cols variable is a simple array of BSW. This automatically splits
the BSW up into segments for the "column.php" image script. It does
the same thing that you were doing by hand.
