-s# Force the scanline unit padding to a specific number. The
legal values are 1, 2, and 4.
-m Force the bit order to most significant bit first.
-l Force the bit order to least significant bit first.
-M Force the byte order to most significant bit first.
-L Force the byte order to least significant bit first.
-w Print warnings if the character bitmaps have bits set to one
outside of their defined widths.
-W Print warnings for characters with an encoding of -1; the
default is to silently ignore such characters.
