NAME
       psfs2cpi	- Construct a .CPI codepage from one or	more PSF files

SYNOPSIS
       psfs2cpi	 [--device=DEV]	[--comment=TEXT] [--drfont] [--nt] [ +CODEPAGE
       | +CODEPAGE=CPNAME ] INPUTFILE [INPUTFILE  ...]	 [+CODEPAGE  INPUTFILE
       [INPUTFILE ...]]	 OUTPUTFILE
DESCRIPTION
       psfs2cpi	combines one or	more PSF files into a CPI file.

       When  run, it takes a list of codepage numbers. Each number should then
       be followed by the names	of one or more PSF files, from which the char-
       acter shapes should be obtained.	For example, the command:

       psfs2cpi	 +437  eg8.psf	eg16.psf  +850	eg8.psf	 eg16.psf +860 eg8.psf
       eg16.psf	+863 eh8.psf eh16.psf eg.cpi

       will generate a CPI file	called eg.cpi, containing codepages 437,  850,
       860  and	 863  in  two  sizes. The first	three codepages	will have been
       based on	eg8.psf	and eg16.psf; the last on eh8.psf and eh16.psf.

       A codepage number can be	followed by a directive	saying	which  mapping
       table  will  actually  be  used.	For example, if	the start of the above
       command had read:

       psfs2cpi	+437=PPC437 ...

       then codepage 437 would have been generated using the slightly  differ-
       ent PPC437 mapping.

       If the PSF files	in question have Unicode directories, and the codepage
       is one of the ones known	to psfs2cpi, then the appropriate glyphs  will
       be  extracted  from the file; this is how three code pages can be based
       on a single PSF file. If	the codepage number is not known, or  the  PSF
       file has	no Unicode directory, then the first 256 characters of the PSF
       file will be used.

OPTIONS
       --device=devname
	      Sets the device name to store in the  codepage  file.  This  de-
	      faults  to  "EGA"; if you	are generating a codepage file for the
	      IBM Convertible, it should be set	to "LCD".

       --comment=comment
	      Sets a comment which will	be added to the	end of the  CPI	 file,
	      such as a	copyright message.

       --drfont
	      Outputs in the compressed	format used by DRDOS.

       --nt   Outputs in the FONT.NT format used by Windows NT.
