SYNOPSIS

xtotroff [ -r resolution ] [ -s point-size ] [ -v ] FontMap

It is possible to have whitespace between a command line option and its parameter.

DESCRIPTION

xtotroff takes a FontMap, which maps groff fonts to X11 fonts, creates GNU troff metric files for all fonts listed. Each line in FontMap consists of GNU troff font name and an X font name (XLFD) pattern, separated by whitespace. Example:

TB   -adobe-times-bold-r-normal--*-*-*-*-p-*-iso8859-1

The wildcards in the patterns are filled with the arguments to the -r and -s switches. If a font name is still ambiguous, xtotroff aborts.
