unibdf2hex - Convert BDF font glyphs into Unifont .hex glyphs


unibdf2hex < input-font.bdf > output-font.hex


unibdf2hex reads a BDF font file, extracting selected code points and printing them on stdout in Unifont .hex format. This program was used to extract CJK ideographs from the 16x16 version of Wen Quan Yi's BDF font. Currently the program is hard-coded to only extract those code points that comprise the "wqy.hex" source font file used to build "unifont.hex" but this source code could easily be modified.
