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
