glutStrokeHeight: Returns the height of a given font.

NAME

glutStrokeHeight - Returns the height of a given font.

LIBRARY

OpenGLUT - fonts

SYNOPSIS

In openglut.h Ft GLfloat Fn glutStrokeHeight void *fontID

PARAMETERS

Bf Em
 fontID Ef
    A GLUT stroked font identifier.

DESCRIPTION

This function reports the height of a font, given by Bf Sy
 fontID, Ef
  as a global characteristic of that font.

Returns 0 if Bf Sy
 fontID Ef
 is invalid.

CAVEATS

Does Bf Li
 not Ef
  report the height used by individual characters.  This may limit its usefulness; perhaps we should change it?  (And/or add a new function.)

TODO

We have discussed adding a "font descender" query. We should go ahead and do it.
