       bdfresize - Resize BDF Format Font


       bdfresize [-v] [-b number] [-[whf] factor] [bdf-file]


       Bdfresize  is  a command to magnify or reduce fonts which are described
       with the standard BDF format.  If bdf-file is not specified,  it  reads
       from  stdin.   Bdfresize  outputs  the  result to stdout in BDF format.
       Some COMMENT lines are inserted to  the  result  font.   FONT  name  is
       modified  depending  on  the  resize factor if the name is described in
       XLFD format.  SIZE,  FONTBOUNDINGBIX,  SWIDTH,  DWIDTH,  BBX  and  some
       property  lines are also modified.  Other lines are copied from source.
       If a syntax error occurs in a source font,  bdfresize  notices  it  and
       stops the whole process.


       -v      Show the version number and exit.

       -b number
               Specify  the  blackness.   Pixel  values  of a resized font are
               decided by this value.  Default is 4.

       -w factor
               Specify the resize factor for the font width.

       -h factor
               Specify the resize factor for the font height.

       -f factor
               Same as ‘‘-w factor -h factor’’.

       factor is described in either of following forms.
