NAME
       bdftruncate - generate truncated BDF font from ISO 10646-1-encoded BDF font

SYNOPSIS
       bdftruncate threshold < source.bdf > destination.bdf

DESCRIPTION
       bdftruncate  allows  one  to generate from an ISO10646-1 encoded BDF font other ISO10646-1
       BDF fonts in which all characters above a threshold code value are stored unencoded.  This
       is  often  desirable because the Xlib API and X11 protocol data structures used for repre-
       senting font metric information are extremely inefficient when handling sparsely populated
       fonts.

EXAMPLE
       The command
	      bdftruncate 0x3200 < 6x13.bdf > 6x13t.bdf
       will  generate  the  file  6x13t.bdf in which all glyphs with codes >= 0x3200 will only be
       stored unencoded (i.e., they are encoded at codepoint -1).
