Try something like:


(0,0) is the text coordinate
(100,100,100) is the text color RGB triple
caption is a string
"courB12.pil" is the filename of an existing pil font file. (you may need to include full path if not in current dir)
(I believe a corresponding courB12.pbm must also exist at the same path)

You can get some pil fonts at http://effbot.org/pil/pilfonts.zip
