Dear TeX support,

I want to create a presentation using FoilTeX. Therefore, I have an 
example of a FoilTex file which can serve as basis for my own slides.
Just I do not get along with the settings in the preamble which control 
the overall appearance of the slides. Would it be possible that you 
indicate behind the
following commands appearing in the preamble what their function is / 
what effect they produce? Unless I understand their meaning it is of 
course impossible to change them so that they fit the requirements of my 
own presentation.





\setlength{\parindent}{0pt} \setlength{\parskip}{18pt}
\setlength{\foilheadskip}{18pt} \setlength{\baselineskip}{0pt}
\setlength{\textheight}{15.0 cm} \setlength{\topmargin}{ -2.0 cm}
\setlength{\textwidth}{ 25 cm} \setlength{\oddsidemargin}{0 cm}


\pagestyle{fancy} \setlength{\color{textcolor}
\headrulewidth}{1.0pt} \setlength{\color{textcolor}    


Many thanks for your help!

Best regards

Patric Gloede
