SYNOPSIS

DESCRIPTION

       file on the standard output that	may be	used  to  recreate  the	 font.

       ducing lost BDF files.

	       read.   servername  must	be specified in	one of the formats de-
	       fined in	the Font Server	Names section of X(7).	 If not	speci-
	       fied, the server	name in	the FONTSERVER environment variable is
	       used.

       -fn fontname
	       This option specifies the font for which	a BDF file  should  be
	       generated.

ENVIRONMENT
