NAME

       unibmp2hex - Bitmap graphics file to GNU Unifont .hex file converter

SYNOPSIS

       unibmp2hex [-phexpage] [-iinput_file.bmp] [-ooutput_file.hex] [-w]

DESCRIPTION

       unibmp2hex  reads a bitmap produced by unihex2bmp before or after editing, and converts it
       back into a Unifont .hex format file.  The graphics file contains a block of  256  Unicode
       code  points  arranged  in  a  16 by 16 grid.  Each code point appears in a 32 by 32 pixel
       grid.  Characters are 16 rows high, and 8, 16, or 31 (treated as 32) columns wide.

OPTIONS

       -ppagenum   Specify that the code points will be assigned to the 256 block  space  pagenum
                   in the .hex file.  If not specified, unibmp2hex will determine the appropriate
                   block by reading the row and column  headers.   Note  that  "page"  is  not  a
                   standard  Unicode  term.  It refers to an output bitmap graphics page of 16 by
                   16 code points.  If pagenum is greater than FF, the block  resides  above  the
                   Unicode  Basic  Multilingual  Plane. In that event, the .hex file will contain
                   eight digit hexadecimal code points rather than the Unifont standard  of  four
                   hexadecimal code points.

       -i          Specify the input file. The default is STDIN.

       -o          Specify the output file. The default is STDOUT.

       -w          Force all output .hex glyphs to be 16 pixels wide rather than dual width (8 or
                   16 pixels).

       Sample usage:

              unibmp2hex -imy_input_file.bmp -omy_output_file.hex

FILES

       *.bmp or *.wbmp graphics files

BUGS

       No known real bugs exist, except that this  software  does  not  perform  extensive  error
       checking  on  its  input  files.   If  they're not in the format of the original bitmapped
       output from unihex2bmp, all bets are off.

       If the output file is for a "page" containing  space  code  points  and  the  bitmap  file
       squares for those code points are not empty, unibmp2hex preserves the graphics as they are
       drawn.
