Render Ring Tones with PHP

By Deane Barker on May 12, 2004

PHP Composer: I nominate this as the most uselessly cool programming tool I’ve ever seen.

This class is meant to render images of the musical score of ring tones notes used in cellular phones, defined in the RTTL format.

It parses the RTTL ring tones string to extract the information about the author, duration, scale, beats per minute and the notes of the tune.

Then it renders the score image using a customizable logo and an appropriate TrueType font to render the notes in the score.

RTTL, it turns out, stamds for “Ring Tone Transfer Language.” You can find out more about the protocol here.
