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 existing 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 param-
       eters.  If a parameter is not specified the default will be used.  The defaults are chosen
       to have the reasonable values for a Times font.
