I hope this mailing list is still alive.. :)

I'm looking for a way to calculate a good starting value for the distance 
between two baselines. In FT2, i've seen some people use some factor of 
face->size->metrics->height for that. Or perhaps FT_FaceRec.height, although 
I'm not sure how that is different from the other height field.

From FT_FaceRec docs:

height - The face's height is the vertical distance from one baseline to the 
next when writing several lines of text. Its value is always positive, 
expressed in font units. The value can be computed as 
`ascender+descender+line_gap' where the value of `line_gap' is also called 
`external leading'.

How can I calculate this height in FT1?
