bdfresize - Resize BDF Format Font


bdfresize [-v] [-b number] [-[whf] factor] [bdf-file]


Bdfresize is a command to magnify or reduce fonts which are described with the standard BDF format. If bdf-file is not specified, it reads from stdin. Bdfresize outputs the result to stdout in BDF format. Some COMMENT lines are inserted to the result font. FONT name is modified depending on the resize factor if the name is described in XLFD format. SIZE, FONTBOUNDINGBIX, SWIDTH, DWIDTH, BBX and some property lines are also modified. Other lines are copied from source. If a syntax error occurs in a source font, bdfresize notices it and stops the whole process.
