GSCHSP (Set character spacing) — sets the character spacing for text.

Synopsis

CALL GSCHSP (CHSP)

C-Binding Synopsis

#include <ncarg/gks.h>

void gset_char_space(Gdouble char_space);

Description

CHSP

(Real, Input) -  Specifies how much additional white  space should be inserted between  characters drawn using the GTX  output primitive. CHSP is specified  as a fraction of the character  height.

A character spacing of zero positions the character  body of each successive character contiguously with enough white space between them to produce pleasing normal spacing. A  positive value inserts extra space between successive  characters. A negative value causes successive characters to overlap. By default CHSP = 0.0.

Access

To use GKS routines, load the NCAR GKS-0A library  ncarg_gks.
