ARGUMENTS

       array_size
                 Specifies the size of ink_array_return and
                 logical_array_return.  The caller must pass in arrays of this
                 size.

       font_set  Specifies the font set.

       ink_array_return
                 Returns the ink dimensions for each character.

       logical_array_return
                 Returns the logical dimensions for each character.

       num_bytes Specifies the number of bytes in the string argument.

       num_chars_return
                 Returns the number of characters in the string argument.

       num_wchars
                 Specifies the number of characters in the string argument.

       overall_ink_return
                 Returns the overall ink extents of the entire string.

       overall_logical_return
                 Returns the overall logical extents of the entire string.

       string    Specifies the character string.

DESCRIPTION

       The XmbTextPerCharExtents, XwcTextPerCharExtents and
       Xutf8TextPerCharExtents functions return the text dimensions of each
       character of the specified text, using the fonts loaded for the
       specified font set.  Each successive element of ink_array_return and
       logical_array_return is set to the successive character's drawn
       metrics, relative to the drawing origin of the string and one rectangle
       for each character in the supplied text string.  The number of elements
       of ink_array_return and logical_array_return that have been set is
       returned to num_chars_return.

       Each element of ink_array_return is set to the bounding box of the
       corresponding character's drawn foreground color.  Each element of
       logical_array_return is set to the bounding box that provides minimum
       spacing to other graphical features for the corresponding character.
       Other graphical features should not intersect any of the
       logical_array_return rectangles.

       Note that an XRectangle represents the effective drawing dimensions of
       the character, regardless of the number of font glyphs that are used to
       draw the character or the direction in which the character is drawn.
       If multiple characters map to a single character glyph, the dimensions
       of all the XRectangles of those characters are the same.

       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.

       If the array_size is too small for the number of characters in the
       supplied text, the functions return zero and num_chars_return is set to
       the number of rectangles required.  Otherwise, the functions return a
       nonzero value.

       If the overall_ink_return or overall_logical_return argument is non-
       NULL, XmbTextPerCharExtents, XwcTextPerCharExtents and
       Xutf8TextPerCharExtents return the maximum extent of the string's
       metrics to overall_ink_return or overall_logical_return, as returned by
       XmbTextExtents, XwcTextExtents or Xutf8TextExtents.

       The function Xutf8TextPerCharExtents 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.
