Subject: [PATCH] new convbdf.c for fast font conversion

[PATCH] new convbdf.c for fast font conversion

From: Greg Haerr <greg_at_censoft.com>

Daniel/Bjorn:

I've attached my completely rewritten version of a C-based
BDF font conversion tool for use with Rockbox. Please
check in this whole file as tools/convbdf.c. In addition, convbdf
can be added to the tools/Makefile TARGETS for
automatic building.

This version has the following advantages:

1. C based runs on windows or linux, no perl no shellscripts
2. Can convert *.bdf into *.c and/or *.fnt in single command ;-)
3. Run "convbdf" for usage.

This version has been tested on 198 .bdf files in the X11
distribution and converts them all to .fnt files in 30 seconds:
"convbdf -f *.bdf"

After this file has been accepted (and tested on windows),
the following files can be removed from CVS:

tools/loadrbf.c
tools/writerbf.c
tools/bdf2fnt
tools/bdf2c

Have fun!

Regards,

Greg
