ADDFTINFO(1)                                                      ADDFTINFO(1)



NAME
       addftinfo - add information to troff font files for use with groff

SYNOPSIS
       addftinfo [ -v ] [ -param value...  ] res unitwidth font

DESCRIPTION
       addftinfo  reads  a  troff font file and adds some additional font-metric information that is used by the groff
       system.  The font file with the information added is written on the standard output.  The information added  is
       guessed  using some parametric information about the font and assumptions about the traditional troff names for
       characters.  The main information added is the heights and depths of characters.  The res and  unitwidth  argu-
       ments  should  be  the  same  as  the  corresponding  parameters in the DESC file; font is the name of the file
       describing the font; if font ends with I the font will be assumed to be italic.

OPTIONS
       -v prints the version number.

       All other options changes one of the parameters that is used to derive the heights and depths.  Like the exist-
       ing  quantities  in the font file, each value is in inches/res for a font whose point size is unitwidth.  param
       must be one of:

       x-height
              The height of lowercase letters without ascenders such as x.

       fig-height
              The height of figures (digits).

       asc-height
              The height of characters with ascenders, such as b, d or l.

       body-height
              The height of characters such as parentheses.

       cap-height
              The height of uppercase letters such as A.

       comma-depth
              The depth of a comma.

       desc-depth
              The depth of characters with descenders, such as p,q, or y.

       body-depth
              The depth of characters such as parentheses.

       addftinfo makes no attempt to use the specified parameters to guess the unspecified parameters.  If a parameter
       is  not  specified the default will be used.  The defaults are chosen to have the reasonable values for a Times
       font.
