HEX2BDF-SPLIT

NAME

hex2bdf-split - Convert a GNU Unifont .hex file into single-width BDF fonts.  

SYNOPSIS


hex2bdf-split n < input_font.hex > halfwidth_output_font.bdf
hex2bdf-split y < input_font.hex > fullwidth_output_font.bdf  

DESCRIPTION

hex2bdf-split reads a sorted GNU Unifont .hex file (sorted with the Unix sort utility) from stdin and writes a BDF version of the font to stdout. This utility was adapted from the original hex2bdf script to accomodate charcell behavior in older X11 implementations. It is present for historical reasons, but will probably be removed in a future distribution. Dependency on this program is discouraged. The main software application written to use the GNU Unifont, the international editor Yudit, does not need a split font. In addition, the GNU Unifont now has a TrueType version that makes most other use of the BDF version obsolete.

hex2bdf-split takes one argument: "y" or "n". If "n" is specified, the output font is set to half-width (8 pixels wide) and "-h-" (for half-width) appears as the X Logical Font Descriptor (XLFD) ADD_STYLE_NAME value. If "y" is specified, the output font is set to full-width (16 pixels wide), and "-f-" (for full-width) appears as the X Logical Font Descriptor (XLFD) ADD_STYLE_NAME value.
