NAME

       unihex2bmp - GNU Unifont .hex file to bitmap graphics file converter

SYNOPSIS

       unihex2bmp [-phexpage] [-iinput_file.hex] [-ooutput_file.bmp] [-f] [-w]

DESCRIPTION

       unihex2bmp  reads a GNU Unifont .hex file Unicode page of 256 code points and converts the
       page into a Microsoft Windows Bitmap (.bmp) or Wireless Bitmap (.wbmp) file.   The  bitmap
       file  displays  the glyphs of a Unicode block of 256 code points in a 32 by 32 pixel grid.
       The glyphs themselves must be 16 rows high, and 8, 16, 24, or 31 (encoded as  32)  columns
       wide. The default page is 0; that is, the range U+0000 through U+00FF.

       The  bitmap can be printed.  It can also be edited with a bitmap editor.  An edited bitmap
       can then be re-converted into a GNU Unifont .hex file with the unibmp2hex command.

OPTIONS

       -ppagenum   Extract page pagenum from the .hex file.  The default is Page 0 (Unicode range
                   U+0000  through U+00FF).  Note that "page" is not a standard Unicode term.  It
                   refers to an output bitmap graphics page of 16 by 16 code points.

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

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

       -f          "Flip" (transpose) the grid so it matches the Unicode standard order.

       -w          Produce a Wireless Bitmap format file instead of a  Microsoft  Windows  Bitmap
                   file.

       Sample usage:

              unihex2bmp -imy_input_file.hex -omy_output_file.bmp

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  GNU  Unifont
       .hex  file,  all bets are off.  Lines can be terminated either with line feed, or carriage
       return plus line feed.
