SYNOPSIS

       #include <pslib.h>

       void PS_show2(PSDoc *psdoc, char *text, int xlen)

DESCRIPTION

       Output  a  text  at  the current text position. No more than xlen chars will be shown. The
       function will issue an error if no font was set before with PS_setfont(3).

       PS_show2() evaluates the following parameters and values as set by PS_set_parameter(3) and
       PS_set_value(3).

       textx     The x coordinate for text output.

       texty     The y coordinate for text output.

       charspacing (value)
                 Distance  between  two consecutive glyphs. If this value is unequal to zero then
                 all ligatures will be resolved. Values less than zero are allowed.

       kerning (parameter)
                 Setting this parameter to `false' will turn off kerning.  Kerning is  turned  on
                 by default.

       ligatures (parameter)
                 Setting this parameter to `false' will turn off the use of ligatures.  Ligatures
                 are turned on by default.

       underline (parameter)
                 Setting this parameter to `true'  will  turn  on  underlining.   Underlining  is
                 turned off by default.

       overline (parameter)
                 Setting  this parameter to `true' will turn on overlining.  Overlining is turned
                 off by default.

       strikeout (parameter)
                 Setting this parameter to `true' will turn on striking  out.   Striking  out  is
                 turned off by default.
