WSFONTLOAD(8) System Manager's Manual WSFONTLOAD(8) NAME wsfontload - load a font bitmap into the wsfont pool or a wscons display device SYNOPSIS wsfontload [-Bbv] [-e encoding] [-f wsdev] [-h height] [-N name] [-w width] [fontfile] DESCRIPTION The wsfontload utility loads a font bitmap into the wsfont font pool (or a wscons device if the device driver supports this). The font gets assigned a name in this process which it can be referred to by later for use on a display screen. The font is loaded from the specified fontfile, or from standard input if fontfile is not provided. The options are: -B Specifies that the font data is ordered right-to-left byte wise. The default is left-to-right. -b Specifies that the font data is ordered right-to-left bit wise. The default is left-to-right. -e encoding Sets the encoding of the font. This can be either a symbolic abbreviation or a numeric value. Currently recognized abbreviations are: `iso' ISO-8859-1 encoding `ibm' IBM encoded fonts `pcvt' the custom encoding of the supplemental fonts which came with the BSD "pcvt" console driver `iso2' ISO-8859-2 (east european) encoding `iso7' ISO-8859-7 (greek) encoding `koi8r' KOI8-R (russian) encoding Per default, `iso' is assumed. -f wsdev Specify the device to operate on. Default is /dev/wsfont. -h height Sets the height of a font character in pixels. Default is 16. -N name Specifies a name which can be used later to refer to the font. If none is given, the fontfile name is used to create one. -v Prints the font's properties before loading it. -w width Sets the width of a font character in pixels. Default is 8. Typically, the wsfontload utility will be executed in system startup by the /etc/rc.d/wscons script, controlled by the /etc/wscons.conf configuration file. FILES /etc/wscons.conf /usr/share/wscons/fonts EXAMPLES wsfontload -N myname -h 8 -e ibm /usr/share/wscons/fonts/vt220l.808 Load the IBM-encoded 8x8-font from the wscons(4) distribution. This (or another 8x8-font) is necessary to use the 50-line screen type on vga(4) displays. wsfontload -N orator -e ibm /usr/share/wscons/fonts/orator.816 wsconsctl -dw font=orator Load the "orator" IBM-encoded 8x16 font and switch the first console screen (ttyE0, wsconsctl's default) to this alternate font. SEE ALSO wscons(4), wsconscfg(8), wsconsctl(8) BUGS Many features are missing. There is no way to remove a loaded font. NetBSD 8.0 May 4, 2003 NetBSD 8.0
