SYNOPSIS

  bdf2png BDF_FILE

DESCRIPTION

This script takes the BDF file 'BDF_FILE' and creates a PNG file for each character defined by the BDF file. For a BDF file named "kanji48.bdf", each PNG file will be named "kanji48.STARTCHAR.pdf".

It uses the Font::BDF::Reader module to read data from the BDF file, and the GD module to create the PNG files.
