DESCRIPTION
       This  program generates a bitmap (ASCII file) which can be used to cre-
       ate X11 applications. The bitmap file consists of  all  pixels  of  the
       specified  character  (via  the -c or -o option) from the given pkfont.
       The format is described in bitmap(X11).

       The pkfont is a packed fontfile generated by gftopk(TeX) from a gffont.
       A  gffont  is  the  output  of  METAFONT a program to design fonts in a
       device independant way.

       With the -b flag a bitmap is generated in which all  black  pixels  are
       drawn as a `*' and all white bits as a `.'. With the -h flag a hexadec-
       imal bitmap dump is generated.

       The -W and/or -H options can be used to create a  bitmap  of  respecti-
       vally  `width'  and `height' pixels. The pk-bitmap will in this case be
       centered according to these new dimensions.

       The output is written to the standard output.
