 2System::String fileName = dataDir + u"courier.pfb";
 3//Font file name with full path
 5System::SharedPtr<FontDefinition> fd = System::MakeObject<FontDefinition>(Aspose::Font::FontType::Type1, System::MakeObject<FontFileDefinition>(u"pfb", System::MakeObject<FileSystemStreamSource>(fileName)));
 6System::SharedPtr<Type1Font> font = System::DynamicCast_noexcept<Aspose::Font::Type1::Type1Font>(Aspose::Font::Font::Open(fd));
 8System::String name = font->get_FontName();
 9System::Console::WriteLine(System::String(u"Font name: ") + name);
10System::Console::WriteLine(System::String(u"Glyph count: ") + font->get_NumGlyphs());
11System::String metrics = System::String::Format(u"Font metrics: ascender - {0}, descender - {1}, typo ascender = {2}, typo descender = {3}, UnitsPerEm = {4}", font->get_Metrics()->get_Ascender(), font->get_Metrics()->get_Descender(), font->get_Metrics()->get_TypoAscender(), font->get_Metrics()->get_TypoDescender(), font->get_Metrics()->get_UnitsPerEM());
