The issue appears to be uneven length output from the perl script.
Perhaps the script itself has a height/width restriction (I should read it and check I suppose but IIRC it was a few lines at most) which leads me onto thought two. The bdf is wrong : (

FULL DISCLOSURE:
Spoiler:
I had a real struggle to find something that purported to be of the right size, I am a complete novice at these fonts and have spent much time attempting to cram the glyph format stuff in my brain. To limited avail. I attempted what you did with the perl script with the c version on the bdf with similar results. I should have mentioned that pop I am sorry I thought perhaps it was the toolset.


Easiest routes would be a) check the bdf is not garbage with a validator - I am not aware of one off hand

b) get another bdf and try that. I opt for this one myself. I searched for about two days on and off before I dredged up the 12x24 one and the 16x32 is part of the terminus project but IIRC they donīt supply a native bdf.

Fondu? or similar... may be our friend here? It converts quite a few bits and have toyed with it locally to get a feel for itīs abilities but again itīs not something I can ījust doī.

It would be nice to get a huge font. If only for the accessibility of it. Also it is there to be done. What more reason is there?
