NAME
       convfont - convert font files for svgalib

SYNOPSIS
       convfont fontfile fontheight vgafontfile

DESCRIPTION
       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
       described 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
       installed 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	 sunsite.unc.edu    at
       /pub/Linux/libs/graphics	 and tsx-11.mit.edu at /pub/linux/sources/libs
       which will most probably be mirrored by a site close to you.

       It is very likely that both are at least to some extent are due to Harm
