Introduced in 5.0.0

A handle identifying any kind of font. Usually you will create it with al_load_font which supports loading all kinds of TrueType fonts supported by the FreeType library. If you instead pass the filename of a bitmap file, it will be loaded with al_load_bitmap and a font in Allegro's bitmap font format will be created from it with al_grab_font_from_bitmap.

Examples: ex_audio_props, ex_bitmap_flip, ex_bitmap_target, ex_blend, ex_blend2, ex_blit, ex_clip, ex_color, ex_disable_screensaver, ex_display_options, ex_draw, ex_draw_bitmap, ex_filter, ex_font, ex_font_justify, ex_fs_window, ex_gldepth, ex_iphone, ex_logo, ex_membmp, ex_mouse_cursor, ex_mouse_events, ex_native_filechooser, ex_pixelformat, ex_premulalpha, ex_prim, ex_stream_seek, ex_synth, ex_timer, ex_transform, ex_ttf, ex_vsync, ex_warp_mouse, ex_windows
