       ducing lost BDF files.

	       defined in the Font Server Names	 section  of  X(7).    If  not
	       specified,  the server name in the FONTSERVER environment vari‐
	       able is used.

       -fn fontname
	       This option specifies the font for which a BDF file  should  be
	       generated.

ENVIRONMENT
