NAME
       fstobdf - generate BDF font from	X font server

SYNOPSIS
       fstobdf [ -server servername ] -fn fontname

       fstobdf -version

DESCRIPTION
       The  fstobdf  program  reads a font from	a font server and prints a BDF
       file on the standard output that	may be	used  to  recreate  the	 font.
       This  is	 useful	in testing servers, debugging font metrics, and	repro-
       ducing lost BDF files.

OPTIONS
       -server servername
	       This option specifies the server	from which the font should  be
	       read.   servername  must	 be  specified	in  one	of the formats
	       defined in the Font Server Names	 section  of  X(7).    If  not
	       specified,  the server name in the FONTSERVER environment vari-
	       able is used.

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

       -version
	       This  option  prints the	program	version	and then exits without
	       generating a BDF	file.

ENVIRONMENT
       FONTSERVER
	       The default server to use.  The server name must	 be  specified
	       in  one of the formats defined in the Font Server Names section
	       of X(7).
