XmbTextExtents(3)		XLIB FUNCTIONS		     XmbTextExtents(3)

       XmbTextExtents, XwcTextExtents, Xutf8TextExtents	- compute text extents

       int XmbTextExtents(XFontSet font_set, char *string, int num_bytes,
	      XRectangle *overall_ink_return, XRectangle *overall_logical_re-

       int XwcTextExtents(XFontSet font_set, wchar_t *string, int num_wchars,
	      XRectangle *overall_ink_return, XRectangle *overall_logical_re-

       int Xutf8TextExtents(XFontSet font_set, char *string, int num_bytes,
	      XRectangle *overall_ink_return, XRectangle *overall_logical_re-

       font_set	 Specifies the font set.

       num_bytes Specifies the number of bytes in the string argument.

		 Specifies the number of characters in the string argument.

		 Returns the overall ink dimensions.

		 Returns the overall logical dimensions.

       string	 Specifies the character string.

       The XmbTextExtents, XwcTextExtents and Xutf8TextExtents functions set
       the components of the specified overall_ink_return and overall_logi-
       cal_return arguments to the overall bounding box	of the string's	image
       and a logical bounding box for spacing purposes,	respectively.  They
       return the value	returned by XmbTextEscapement, XwcTextEscapement or
       Xutf8TextEscapement.  These metrics are relative	to the drawing origin
       of the string, using the	fonts loaded for the specified font set.

       If the overall_ink_return argument is non-NULL, it is set to the	bound-
       ing box of the string's character ink.  The overall_ink_return for a
       nondescending, horizontally drawn Latin character is conventionally en-
       tirely above the	baseline; that is, overall_ink_return.height <=	-over-
       all_ink_return.y.  The overall_ink_return for a nonkerned character is
       entirely	at, and	to the right of, the origin; that is, overall_ink_re-
       turn.x >= 0.  A character consisting of a single	pixel at the origin
       would set overall_ink_return fields y = 0, x = 0, width = 1, and	height
       = 1.

       If the overall_logical_return argument is non-NULL, it is set to	the
       bounding	box that provides minimum spacing to other graphical features
       for the string.	Other graphical	features, for example, a border	sur-
       rounding	the text, should not intersect this rectangle.

       When the	XFontSet has missing charsets, metrics for each	unavailable
       character are taken from	the default string returned by XCreateFontSet
       so that the metrics represent the text as it will actually be drawn.
       The behavior for	an invalid codepoint is	undefined.

       The function Xutf8TextExtents 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.
