Sample output can be found at the bottom of the web page http://unifoundry.com/unicode-tutorial.html. The third utility checks for duplicate Unicode code points in a sorted Unifont .hex file to guard against duplicate glyphs when merging updates. The fourth utility shows the Unicode Basic Multilingual Plane coverage of a GNU Unifont .hex file in a 16 by 16 grid, with each cell representing a block of 256 Unicode code points. Samples of the BMP coverage tables appear at http://unifoundry.com/unicode-utilities.html. This package now includes scripts originally written by Luis Gonzalez Miranda for converting a .hex file into a scalable TrueType font using FontForge, adapted for Unicode 5.1. Roman Czyborra's most important Perl scripts are also included. A Makefile now calls bdftopcf to convert the BDF font into PCF. The FontForge, Perl, and bdftopcf programs must be installed separately.
