       convfont	- convert font files for svgalib

       convfont	fontfile fontheight vgafontfile

       convert	the standard format binary fontfile name fontfile to the code-
       page format required by restorefont(1).	The converted font is  written
       to vgafontfile.

       A  binary  font file of any number of characters	up to 256 can be used,
       although	at least defining the first 128	characters is a	good idea. The
       fontheight must be in the range 1 - 32.

       The  fontfile file consist of fontheight	bytes stored sequentially (top
       to bottom) for each character in	your font, starting with the character
       with code 0.

       The  format  of	vgafontfile is that required by	restorefont(1) and de-
       scribed there.

       This utility is part of svgalib and can be found	in the	utils/	subdi-
       rectory	of  the	 original svgalib distribution.	However, it is not in-
       stalled by default, s.t.	it is unclear where you	can find  it  if  your
       svgalib was install linux distribution.

       In  case	 of  any such problem, simply get an svgalib distribution from
       the net.	You don't need to install it. Just make	in the	utils/	subdi-
       recty.  As of this writing, svgalib-1.2.12.tar.gz is the	latest version
       and   can   be	retrieved   by	  ftp	 from    at
       /pub/Linux/libs/graphics	 and at /pub/linux/sources/libs
       which will most probably	be mirrored by a site close to you.

       This manual page	was edited by Michael Weller  <eowmob@exp-math.uni-es->.	 The  exact source of the referenced utility as	well as	of the
       original	documentation is unknown.

       It is very likely that both are at least	to some	extent are due to Harm
       Hanemaayer <>.

       Occasionally  this  might be wrong. I hereby asked to be	excused	by the
       original	author and will	happily	accept any additions or	corrections to
       this first version of the svgalib manual.
