psf2bdf(1)			   PSF Tools			    psf2bdf(1)

NAME
       psf2bdf - convert part or all of	a PSF Font file	to an X11 BDF.

SYNOPSIS
       psf2bdf	[--first=FIRST]	[--last=LAST] [--256] [--fontname=NAME]	[--de-
       fchar=INDEX] [--descent=VALUE] [--codepage=CODEPAGE] [--iso10646]  [IN-
       PUTFILE [OUTPUTFILE]]
DESCRIPTION
       psf2bdf	saves some or all characters from a .PSF font to an X11-format
       BDF font	file. The resulting file should	then be	tidied up in an	editor
       such as xmbdfed(1) before being installed.

OPTIONS
       --codepage=x
	      Extracts only the	characters in the given	codepage (requires the
	      source PSF file to have a	Unicode	directory). Any	characters  in
	      the  codepage  not  present  in  the source font are replaced by
	      blanks. The codepage can be specified by	number	or  name;  see
	      psfpages(1) for a	list of	acceptable codepage names.

       --first=n
	      Extracts characters starting at the specified character.

       --last=n
	      Extracts characters up to	and including the specified character.

       --256  Equivalent to --first=0 --last=255.

       --fontname=name
	      Sets the XLFD name of the	font being output.

       --descent=n
	      Sets  the	descent	(pixels	between	the character baseline and the
	      bottom of	the character cell). If	this is	not entered it is  as-
	      sumed to be 1/4 of the character height.

       --defchar=n
	      Sets the number of the default character to use.

       --iso10646
	      If  this option is present and the source	file has a Unicode di-
	      rectory, the font	will encode the	ID of each  character  as  its
	      Unicode  position.  Otherwise the	character's ID is equal	to its
	      position in the file.

       If a codepage and a range of characters are both	specified,  the	 range
       is applied to the subset	of characters extracted	by the codepage.

BUGS
       The BDF needs tidying up	after generation, as mentioned above.
