       bdftops - Shell script to convert a BDF file to a scalable outline using bdftops.ps

       bdftops BDF_filename [AFM_file1_name] gsf_filename fontname UniqueID [XUID] [encodingname]

       Ghostscript  provides a way to construct a (low-quality) Type 1 font from a bitmap font in
       the BDF format popular in the Unix world.  The shell script bdftops converts a BDF file to
       a scalable outline using bdftops.ps.

       The arguments have these meanings:

	    BDF_filename   Input bitmap file in BDF format
	    AFM_file1_name AFM files giving metrics	      (Optional)
	    gsf_filename   Output file
	    fontname	   Name of the font
	    UniqueID	   UniqueID
	    XUID	   XUID, in the form n1.n2.n3...      (Optional)
	    encodingname   "StandardEncoding" (the default),  (Optional)
			   "ISOLatin1Encoding", "SymbolEncoding",

       See  the  Fonts.htm document in the Ghostscript distribution for information on converting

	    bdftops pzdr.bdf ZapfDingbats.afm pzdr.gsf ZapfDingbats 4100000 1000000.1.41

       Then make an entry in Fontmap for the .gsf file (pzdr.gsf in this example).
