       XmbTextEscapement, XwcTextEscapement, Xutf8TextEscapement - obtain the escapement of text

SYNTAX
       int XmbTextEscapement(XFontSet font_set, char *string, int num_bytes);

       int XwcTextEscapement(XFontSet font_set, wchar_t *string, int num_wchars);

       int Xutf8TextEscapement(XFontSet font_set, char *string, int num_bytes);

DESCRIPTION
       The XmbTextEscapement, XwcTextEscapement and Xutf8TextEscapement functions return the
       escapement in pixels of the specified string as a value, using the fonts loaded for the
       specified font set.  The escapement is the distance in pixels in the primary draw direc-
       tion from the drawing origin to the origin of the next character to be drawn, assuming
       that the rendering of the next character is not dependent on the supplied string.

       Regardless of the character rendering order, the escapement is always positive.

       The function Xutf8TextEscapement is an extension introduced by The XFree86 Project, Inc.
       in their 4.0.2 release. Its presence is indicated by the macro X_HAVE_UTF8_STRING.
