       pamtompfont - Convert Netpbm image to Mplayer bitmap font file

       pamtompfont [imagefile]

       All  options  can be abbreviated to their shortest unique prefix.  You may use two hyphens
       instead of one.	You may separate an option name and its value with white space instead of
       an equals sign.

       This program is part of Netpbm(1)

       pamtompfont  reads  a  Netpbm image (PNM or PAM) and converts it to an Mplayer bitmap font
       raster file.

       This is the original font format used  by  Mplayer  (for  subtitles,  on-screen	messages,
       etc.), before it had the ability to use Freetype to access standard fonts.

       The  format was apparently an image format before Mplayer adopted it for fonts, but I have
       no idea where it came from or where else it might be used.

       An Mplayer bitmap font consists of a font descriptor file  and  raster  files.	The  font
       descriptor file identifies the raster files by file name.  A raster file contains a single
       rectangular raster image which contains an arrangement of a bunch of glyphs.   Each  glyph
       is  a rectangular image and the font descriptor indicates where in the image the glyph for
       each codepoint is.  Every glyph in the font has the same height, so  the  font  descriptor
       just  indicates	the  file position in the raster file of the to left corner of the glyph,
       and the width of the glyph in pixels.



       pamtompfont was added to Netpbm in Release 10.43 (June 2008).
