@dfn{Vertical fractional scrolling} means shifting text in a window
up or down by a specified multiple or fraction of a line. Each window
has a @dfn{vertical scroll position}, which is a number, never less than
zero. It specifies how far to raise the contents of the window.
Raising the window contents generally makes all or part of some lines
disappear off the top, and all or part of some other lines appear at the
bottom. The usual value is zero.
The vertical scroll position is measured in units of the normal line
The vertical scroll position is measured in units of the normal line
height, which is the height of the default font. Thus, if the value is
.5, that means the window contents are scrolled up half the normal line
height. If it is 3.3, that means the window contents are scrolled up
somewhat over three times the normal line height.
What fraction of a line the vertical scrolling covers, or how many
What fraction of a line the vertical scrolling covers, or how many
lines, depends on what the lines contain. A value of .5 could scroll a
line whose height is very short off the screen, while a value of 3.3
could scroll just part of the way through a tall line or an image.

The window size functions fall into two classes: high-level commands
that change the size of windows and low-level functions that access
window size. Emacs does not permit overlapping windows or gaps between
windows, so resizing a window always affects at least one other window.
