          num_bytes);

          int num_wchars);

     int Xutf8TextEscapement(XFontSet font_set, char *string, int
          num_bytes);

ARGUMENTS

     font_set  Specifies the font set.

     num_bytes Specifies the number of bytes in the string argu-
               ment.

DESCRIPTION

     The XmbTextEscapement, XwcTextEscapement and
     Xutf8TextEscapement functions return the escapement in pix-
     els of the specified string as a value, using the fonts
     loaded for the specified font set. The escapement is the
     distance in pixels in the primary draw direction from the
     drawing origin to the origin of the next character to be
     drawn, assuming that the rendering of the next character is
     not dependent on the supplied string.

     Regardless of the character rendering order, the escapement
     is always positive.

     The function Xutf8TextEscapement is an XFree86 extension
     introduced in XFree86 4.0.2. Its presence is indicated by
     the macro X_HAVE_UTF8_STRING.
