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 repreā€ senting 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 codepoint -1).
