NAME
       fstobdf - generate BDF font from X font server

SYNOPSIS
       fstobdf [ -server servername ] -fn fontname

       fstobdf -version

DESCRIPTION
       The  fstobdf  program  reads a font from a font server and prints a BDF
       file on the standard output that may be  used  to  recreate  the  font.
       This  is  useful in testing servers, debugging font metrics, and repro-
       ducing lost BDF files.

OPTIONS
       -server servername
               This option specifies the server from which the font should  be
               read.   servername  must  be  specified  in  one of the formats
               defined in the Font Server Names  section  of  X(7).    If  not
               specified,  the server name in the FONTSERVER environment vari-
               able is used.

       -fn fontname
               This option specifies the font for which a BDF file  should  be
               generated.

       -version
               This  option  prints the program version and then exits without
               generating a BDF file.

ENVIRONMENT
       FONTSERVER
               The default server to use.  The server name must  be  specified
               in  one of the formats defined in the Font Server Names section
               of X(7).
