       Font::TTF::GDEF - Opentype GDEF table support

       The GDEF table contains various global lists of information which are apparantly used in
       other places in an OpenType renderer. But precisely where is open to speculation...

       There are up to 5 tables in the GDEF table, each with their own structure:

	   This is an Font::TTF::Coverage Class Definition table containing information as to
	   what type each glyph is.

	   The attach table consists of a coverage table and then attachment points for each
	   glyph in the coverage table:

		   This is a coverage table

	   POINTS  This is an array of point elements. Each element is an array of curve points
		   corresponding to the attachment points on that glyph. The order of the curve
		   points in the array corresponds to the attachment point number specified in
		   the MARKS coverage table (see below).

       LIG This contains the ligature caret positioning information for ligature glyphs

		   A coverage table to say which glyphs are ligatures

	   LIGS    An array of elements for each ligature. Each element is an array of
		   information for each caret position in the ligature (there being number of
		   components - 1 of these, generally)

		   FMT	       This is the format of the information and is important to provide
			       the semantics for the value. This value must be set correctly
			       before output

		   VAL	       The value which has meaning according to FMT

		   DEVICE      For FMT = 3, a device table is also referenced which is stored

	   This class definition table defines the classes of mark glyphs that can be selected
	   for processing using the MarkAttachmentType field of lookup FLAG words.

	   Contains an array of coverage tables indexed by the FILTER value of a lookup.

       Reads the table into the data structure

       Writes out this table.

       Sort COVERAGE tables.
