bdftruncate(1x)                                                bdftruncate(1x)




NAME

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


SYNOPSIS

       bdftruncate threshold < source.bdf > destination.bdf


DESCRIPTION

       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 unencoded.  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.


EXAMPLE

       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  code-
       point -1).
