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


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


       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  arguments 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.


v prints the version number.

       All  other options change one of the parameters that are 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-option must be one of:

              The height of lowercase letters without ascenders such as x.

              The height of figures (digits).

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

              The height of characters such as parentheses.

              The height of uppercase letters such as A.

              The depth of a comma.

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

              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.
