11.6.3.1 BZR character beginnings

BZR format provides two ways to start characters: an abbreviated one, which saves space in common cases, and a longer form which (we hope) will always suffice.

The short form looks like this:

 
BOC_ABBREV @cmindex BOC_ABBREV
charcode[1]
set-width[2]
llx[2] lly[2] urx[2] ury[2]

The long form:

 
BOC @cmindex BOC
charcode[1]
set-width[3]
llx[3] lly[3] urx[3] ury[3]

Here is a description of these components:

As with other formats, the left side bearing is defined by llx, and the right side bearing by set-width - urx.

See section 11.6.1 BZR format introduction, for general information about BZR files and for the definition of the types used here.
