hexdraw - Convert a GNU Unifont .hex file to and from an ASCII text file


hexdraw < input-font.hex > output-font.txt
hexdraw < input-font.txt > output-font.hex


hexdraw reads a sorted GNU Unifont .hex file from STDIN and writes a two dimensional ASCII art rendering for each glyph to STDOUT. The output file can be edited with any text editor, then converted back into a .hex file. Unifont ASCII hexadecimal glyphs are 16 pixels high and can be 8, 16, 24, or 32 pixels wide.
