Summary description: Show characters inside a box 
License type: lppl

Announcement text: 

This package typesets a character inside a box, showing where reference point 
is. It also displays width, height, and depth information of the character. This 
produces the output like the one in page 63 of "The TeXBook" or page 101 of "The 
METAFONTbook". The package is motivated by Knuth macros in file manmac.tex.

Please note that using this package means that you should put a character in 
large size inside a box and putting small size of a character inside the box 
does not make any sense.


This package is located at 
.  More information is at
(if the package is new it may take a day for that information to 
appear).  We are supported by the TeX Users Group http://www.tug.org .

Thanks for the upload.
