NAME
       txt2psf - compile a PC Screen Font file from a textual description

SYNOPSIS
       txt2psf [--psf1]	[--psf2] [INPUTFILE [OUTPUTFILE]]
DESCRIPTION
       txt2psf converts	an ASCII source	file to	a font in the .PSF format.

INPUT FILE FORMAT
       The  source file	is composed of a header, followed by a series of char-
       acter definitions. The first line of the	header must be "%PSF2";	it  is
       followed	by these fields, each on a separate line, in any order:

       Version:	nnn
	      File format version; currently this must be 0.

       Flags: nnn
	      This is 1	if the font should include a Unicode table, else 0.

       Length: nnn
	      The number of characters in this font. If	it is too low, the ex-
	      tra characters will be ignored. Too high,	and the	extras will be
	      left blank.

       Width: nnn
	      The width	of a character cell.

       Height: nnn
	      The height of a character	cell.

       After  the header, character definitions	follow.	Each character defini-
       tion starts as a	"%" on a line by itself. It is then  followed  by  two
       fields, in any order.

       Bitmap: bitmapdata
	      The  bitmap  is composed of width*height cells, each of which is
	      either a '-' (zero) or a '#' (black). Whitespace is ignored. The
	      bitmap  can be spread over several lines;	the bitmaps created by
	      psf2txt(1) are, for example.

       Unicode:	unicodestring
	      This describes the Unicode characters this bitmap	represents. It
	      is formed	"[single];[sing]e];...[sequence];[sequence];..." where
	      single is	a single hexadecimal number, and sequence  is  two  or
	      more hexadecimal numbers separated by + signs.  So "[41];" is an
	      example of a single character, and "[00B4+0065];"	is an  example
	      of a sequence. If	the bitmap doesn't represent any Unicode char-
	      acters this field	may be blank or	simply missing.

OPTIONS
       --psf1 Force the	resulting file to be in	PSF1 format.

       --psf2 Force the	resulting file to be in	PSF2 format.

BUGS
       The file	format is too rigid, and the parser (such as it	 is)  a	 quick
       hack.

       The "Length:" header should not be necessary; txt2psf should be able to
       calculate the file size itself.
