drawText: undocumented return value

The drawText function seem to return the width in pixels of the drawn text.
I could not find this in the documentation tho. Might be a nice thing to add


nice find. i use this all the time from the return values of drawTextInRect

does drawText() return width, height, was_truncated possibly? (like drawTextInRect()

Checked, it's just width

It appears there is a bit of a discrepancy here. playdate.graphics.drawText() does indeed return width, height, but playdate.graphics.font:drawText() only returns width.

And of course as you noticed both are undocumented.

I'll take a look at cleaning this up and adding to the documentation. Thanks for pointing out the oversight!
