NAME
       ppmdcfont - Turn a Ppmdfont file into C source for a builtin font


SYNOPSIS
       ppmdcfont



DESCRIPTION
       This program is part of Netpbm(1).

       (There are no arguments or options)

       ppmdcfont creates a C source file that you can compile into a built-in font for use with the Netpbm PPM drawing
       facilities.  It reads a Ppmdfont file on Standard Input and writes the C source code to Standard Output.

       The output C source code has the font object's name hardcoded as ppmd_standardfont, which you  will  definitely
       want to edit, because that is the name of the font built in to libnetpbm.  If you don't change it, it will con-
       flict both cognitively and in program linking.  There should obviously be an  option  on  ppmdcfont  to  choose
       this, but the development effort has not been justified so far.

       See LibnetpbmPPMDrawingFunction Manual (1) for details on Ppmdfont files.
