NAME
       pamtompfont - Convert Netpbm image to Mplayer bitmap font file

SYNOPSIS
       pamtompfont [imagefile]

       All  options  can  be abbreviated to their shortest unique prefix.  You
       may use two hyphens instead of one.  You	may separate  an  option  name
       and its value with white	space instead of an equals sign.

DESCRIPTION
       This program is part of Netpbm(1).

       pamtompfont  reads  a  Netpbm  image (PNM or PAM) and converts it to an
       Mplayer bitmap font raster file.

       This is the original font format	used by	Mplayer	 (for  subtitles,  on-
       screen  messages,  etc.),  before it had	the ability to use Freetype to
       access standard fonts.

       The format was apparently an image format before	Mplayer	adopted	it for
       fonts,  but I have no idea where	it came	from or	where else it might be
       used.

       An Mplayer bitmap font consists of a font descriptor  file  and	raster
       files.	The  font  descriptor file identifies the raster files by file
       name.  A	raster file contains a single rectangular raster  image	 which
       contains	 an arrangement	of a bunch of glyphs.  Each glyph is a rectan-
       gular image and the font	descriptor indicates where in  the  image  the
       glyph  for  each	 codepoint  is.	  Every	glyph in the font has the same
       height, so the font descriptor just indicates the file position in  the
       raster  file  of	 the to	left corner of the glyph, and the width	of the
       glyph in	pixels.

OPTIONS
       None.
