NAME
       psf2wyse	- convert a PC Screen Font file	to a Wyse-60 soft font

SYNOPSIS
       psf2wyse	 [--bank=BANK] [--dest=DEST] [--height=HEIGHT] [--first=FIRST]
       [--last=LAST] [--nulls=COUNT] [INPUTFILE	[OUTPUTFILE]]
DESCRIPTION
       psf2wyse	converts a font	in the .PSF format to a	soft-font suitable for
       use  with Wyse-60 and compatible	terminals. The resulting soft-font can
       be saved	as a text file,	or just	sent straight to the terminal.

OPTIONS
       --bank=BANK
	      The Wyse-60 has four banks of 128	characters each, numbered 0 to
	      3.  By  default  the first two contain the 16-pixel font used in
	      25-line modes, and the second two	contain	the 9-pixel font  used
	      in  43-line modes. This option sets the first bank to load into;
	      note that	psf2wyse will load into	subsequent banks if there  are
	      more characters in the font than will fit	into one.

       --dest=DEST
	      Specifies	 the  first  character	to populate in the destination
	      bank. By default this is zero.

       --first=FIRST
	      Starts generating	the font at character FIRST.

       --last=LAST
	      Finishes generating the font after doing character LAST.

       --height=HEIGHT
	      Sets the height of the characters	which will be sent to the ter-
	      minal.  By  default  this	is 16, whatever	the height of the font
	      being converted; on a Wyse-60, attempts to define	characters  at
	      other heights appear to be ignored.

       --nulls=COUNT
	      After  sending  the  definition for a character, send COUNT null
	      bytes. This appears to be	necessary to make  sure	 the  terminal
	      doesn't  miss the	start of a character while it's	still process-
	      ing the previous character. By default COUNT is 8.

BUGS
       The terminal screen tends to flicker like crazy while characters	not in
       the current bank	are being defined.
