: And they seem to be no proportional fonts.
You might "make" them proportional by giving some of
the characters slimmed-down DWIDTH values, after
looking at the generated .c source bitmaps for reference.
: Done. And the "STARTCHAR decXY" is only a description and I can change
: them to start at 32, too?
Yes, the string following STARTCHAR is supposed to be the
official name of the character. I would remove any chars
and not use any description, using only ENCODING to
properly specify the encoding value.
: : - "SWIDTH:" - what's this?
Stands for scalable width, used only for printing. You can
remove all SWIDTH from the file.
: - ...all the values before the char definitions start.
I would use the values from X5x8.bdf or another small
font, FONT_ASCENT, FONT_DESCENT
,FOUNDBOUNDINGBOX, STARTFONT and FONT
are the only ones that matter.
: The newpropfont.bdf in the attachment seems to have an empty column at
: the left of each character, I don't know if this is correct (look at
: the bmp images, created with bdf2bmp.c found somewhere in the net).
I'll take a look at it.
