NAME
       bdftruncate  - generate truncated BDF font from ISO 10646-1-encoded BDF
       font

SYNOPSIS
       bdftruncate threshold < source.bdf > destination.bdf

DESCRIPTION
       bdftruncate allows one to generate from an ISO10646-1 encoded BDF  font
       other  ISO10646-1  BDF  fonts in	which all characters above a threshold
       code value are stored unencoded.	 This is often desirable  because  the
       Xlib  API  and  X11 protocol data structures used for representing font
       metric information are extremely	 inefficient  when  handling  sparsely
       populated fonts.

EXAMPLE
       The command
	      bdftruncate 0x3200 < 6x13.bdf > 6x13t.bdf
       will  generate  the  file  6x13t.bdf  in	which all glyphs with codes >=
       0x3200 will only	be stored unencoded (i.e., they	are encoded  at	 code-
       point -1).
