13.2 Invoking XBfe

This section describes the options that XBfe accepts. See section 3.3 Command-line options, for general option syntax.

`-dpi unsigned'
The resolution, in pixels per inch. See section 3.3.2 Common options.

`-expansion unsigned'
Expand each pixel in the character bitmaps to this many pixels square on the display; default is 12, i.e., each pixel in the original bitmap will become a 12 by 12 rectangle.

You can't use `=' here to separate the option name and value.

You can also set this value by setting the resource `expansion' in `.Xdefaults'.

`-initial-char charcode'
Initially display the character charcode; default is the first character in the font, i.e., the one with the lowest character code.

Print a usage message. See section 3.3.2 Common options.

`-output-file filename'
Write the output to `filename.dpigf' and `filename.tfm'. The default is to use the name of the main input file for filename.

Print the version number.

In addition to the above options, XBfe also accepts the standard X toolkit options (and resources), such as `-display' to specify the X server to use. See the documentation for any X program for a description of these options. Unlike the options above, you cannot use `--' to start X toolkit options, nor can you use `=' to separate option names and values; for example, neither `--display host:0' nor `-display=host:0' are recognized.
