Bitmap fonts to ascii text files
« on: September 06, 2013, 04:17:00 AM »
Hi,

What are the tools that can convert bitmap fonts to plain ascii text files or formated in C source code? Can be whatever font format (DOS, PSF, BDF, PCF, SNF, FON, etc.), but usually I use the most common ones. The tool can be either in C source form (for Linux for example), or an executable one (for DOS/Windows/x86 Linux).

I could not find this on Google and I need these tools for my projects.

Thanks. :)

Hi,

What are you asking for is, imho, very specific converter. It's doubtful that
someone here will come out and resolve your problem. Weren't you try
to create it yourself. I suggest you to look at structure of, say, FON or
whatever bitmap font file and start to create this converter on your own,
then upload your source code and ask people to help you if you are in
trouble. This could be quite trivial task and you don't need to dive into
Win32 API ocean

I know this is an old thread but I've just downloaded the code and am playing with it.  It's a pretty easy way to begin to learn some network programming and some SQL usage as well...
