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

       addftinfo [ -param 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.

       Each  of	 the  options  changes	one  of the parameters that is 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 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.
