I'm working on text rendering of WebKit. I tried to find my path through it and I was a bit successful but I'm wondering in a gtk build when there is a large paragraph of text to be shown on screen where does the length of each line decided? I know that to show text a drawText function in the Font.cpp is called but the issue is it gets a string for each line, my question is for a large paragraph where does the code cuts the text in lines and decides the length and prepare it for drawText function?
