      Find size and angle of text string given points at each end.


Calling Sequence

      textpos, txt, p1, p2, ix,iy,sz,ang


      txt = Desired text string. in
      p1 = [x1,y1] = text starting point. in
      p2 = [x2,y2] = text end point. in

Keyword Parameters


        /DATA input points in data coordinates (default).
        /DEVICE input points in device coordinates.
        /NORMAL input points in normalized coordinates.
        ALIGNMENT=jst Desired text alignment (def=0.).


      ix,iy = Returned device coordinates of text. out
      sz = Returned charsize for text. out
      ang = Returned angle of text. out

Common Blocks


      Notes: If p1 is desired text string starting point then
        xyouts may use the same coordinate system as p1.
        But if ALIGNMENT is not 0 then use the returned device
        coordinates, ix,iy. Text is not plotted, only the
        position, size, and angle is determined. Use xyouts
        to actually plot the text and remember to use the same
        value for the alignment parameter.
