 33.SH DESCRIPTION
 34.B addftinfo
 35reads a troff font file
 36and adds some additional font-metric information
 37that is used by the groff system.
 38The font file with the information added is written on the
 39standard output.
 40The information added is guessed using 
 41some parametric information about the font
 42and assumptions
 43about the traditional troff names for characters.
 44The main information added is the heights and depths of characters.
 45The
 46.I res
 47and
 48.I unitwidth
 49arguments should be the same as the corresponding parameters
 50in the DESC file;
 51.I font
 52is the name of the file describing the font;
 53if
 54.I font
 55ends with
 56.B I
 57the font will be assumed to be italic.
 58.SH OPTIONS
 59.B \-v
 60prints the version number.
 61.LP
 62All other options changes one of the parameters that is used
 63to derive the heights and depths.
 64Like the existing quantities in the font
 65file, each
 66.I value
 67is in
 68.RI inches/ res
 69for a font whose point size is
 70.IR unitwidth .
 71.I param
 72must be one of:
 73.TP
 74.B x-height
 75The height of lowercase letters without ascenders such as x.
 76.TP

 97.LP
 98.B addftinfo
 99makes no attempt to use the specified parameters to guess
100the unspecified parameters.
101If a parameter is not specified the default will be used.
102The defaults are chosen to have the reasonable values for
103a Times font.
