MirOS Manual: bdftruncate(1)

bdftruncate(1)               XFree86               bdftruncate(1)


     bdftruncate - generate truncated BDF font from ISO 10646-1-
     encoded BDF font


     bdftruncate threshold < source.bdf > destination.bdf


     bdftruncate allows one to generate from an ISO10646-1
     encoded BDF font other ISO10646-1 BDF fonts in which all
     characters above a threshold code value are stored unen-
     coded.  This is often desirable because the Xlib API and X11
     protocol data structures used for representing font metric
     information are extremely inefficient when handling sparsely
     populated fonts.


     The command
          bdftruncate 0x3200 < 6x13.bdf > 6x13t.bdf
     will generate the file 6x13t.bdf in which all glyphs with
     codes >= 0x3200 will only be stored unencoded (i.e., they
     are encoded at codepoint -1).
