NAME
xtotroff - convert X font metrics into GNU troff font metrics SYNOPSIS
xtotroff [ -rresolution ] [ -spoint-size ] [ -v ] FontMap It is possible to have whitespace between a command line option and its parameter. DESCRIPTION
xtotroff takes a FontMap, which maps groff fonts to X11 fonts, creates GNU troff metric files for all fonts listed. Each line in FontMap consists of GNU troff font name and an X font name (XLFD) pattern, separated by whitespace. Example: TB -adobe-times-bold-r-normal--*-*-*-*-p-*-iso8859-1 The wildcards in the patterns are filled with the arguments to the -r and -s switches. If a font name is still ambiguous, xtotroff aborts. OPTIONS
-rresolution Set the resolution for all font patterns in FontMap. The value is used for both the horizontal and vertical resolution. If not specified, a resolution of 75dpi is assumed. -spoint-size Set the point size for all font patterns in FontMap. If not specified, a size of 10pt is assumed. -v Print the version number. BUGS
The only supported font encodings are `iso8859-1' and `adobe-fontspecific'. SEE ALSO
