ncl_gset_char_expan man page
gset_char_expan (Set character expansion factor) — sets the width to height ratio of text.
void gset_char_expan(Gdouble char_expan);
(Input) - Specifies a deviation of the width to height ratio for characters drawn using the GTX output primitive. char_expan of 10.0 would specify a character that is 10 times as wide as normal. char_expan of 0.1 would request characters that are 1/10th as wide as normal. The character height remains unchanged. char_expan > 0. By default char_expan = 1.0
To use the GKS C-binding routines, load the ncarg_gks and ncarg_c libraries.
