NAME

       hex2bdf - Convert a GNU Unifont .hex file into a BDF font

SYNOPSIS

       hex2bdf < input-font.hex > output-font.bdf

DESCRIPTION

       hex2bdf  reads  a  sorted  GNU  Unifont .hex file (sorted with the Unix sort utility) from
       STDIN and writes a BDF version of the font to STDOUT.

OPTIONS

       -f "font-name"
                   Specify the target font name.  If omitted, the default font name "Unifont"  is
                   assigned.

       -v "font-version"
                   Specify  the  target  font  version.  If omitted, the default version "1.0" is
                   assigned.

       -c "font-copyright"
                   Specify the target font  copyright  information.   The  default  is  the  null
                   string.

       -r <pixel-rows>
                   Specify  how  many pixel rows tall a glyph is.  The default is the traditional
                   Unifont 16 rows of pixels.  This is an addition to support  unihex2png(1)  and
                   unipng2hex(1),  which allow designing glyphs that are 16, 24, or 32 pixel rows
                   tall.
