output all glyphs in a bdf-font to a bmp-image-file



SYNOPSIS
    bdf2bmp [-options ...] input-BDF-file output-BMP-file

DESCRIPTION
    The bdf2bmp utility creates a BMP-image-file containing
    all the glyph-images in a BDF-font-file.  That BMP file
    is a kind of Windows-type, 256 colors(8bitsPerPixel).

OPTIONS
    bdf2bmp accepts command line options listed below:

    -s<number>
        This option specifies the width of spacing.
        The <number> can range from 0 to 32.  The
        default is 0.

    -c<number>
        This option specifies the number of columns in
        grid.  The <number> can range from 1 to 1024.
        The default is 32.

    -w
        This option directs to show the baseline and
        the widths of glyphs with gray colors.

    -i
        This option directs to prompt whether to
        overwrite an existing file.  If the response
        does not begin with `y' or `Y', the file is
        not overwritten.

    -h
        This option directs to print help.

EXAMPLES
    $  bdf2bmp -s 3 -c 16 courR18.bdf courR18.bmp
