NAME
       xtotroff - convert X font metrics into GNU troff font metrics

SYNOPSIS
       xtotroff [ -rresolution ] [ -spoint-size ] [ -v ] FontMap

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 con-
       sists  of  GNU troff font name and an X font name (XLFD) pattern, sepa-
       rated 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.

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

       -rresolution
              Set the resolution for all font patterns in FontMap.  The  value
              is used for both the horizontal and vertical resolution.  If not
              specified, a resolution of 75dpi is assumed.

       -spoint-size
              Set the point size for all font patterns  in  FontMap.   If  not
              specified, a size of 10pt is assumed.

       -v     Print the version number.

BUGS
       The  only  supported font encodings are `iso8859-1' and 'adobe-fontspe-
       cific'.
