hexdraw - Convert a GNU Unifont .hex file to and from an ASCII text
hexdraw < input_font.hex > output_font.txt
hexdraw < input_font.txt > output_font.hex
hexdraw reads a sorted GNU Unifont .hex file from stdin and writes a
two dimensional ASCII art rendering for each glyph to stdout. The
output file can be edited with any text editor, then converted back
into a .hex file.
