Hi,
working on an graphic lcd project and have come to the conclusion that i
need
an fixed pitch font of either the size 6x13 or 7x14. None of the 100+ ttf font's I have on my win-machine will match the bill. An hour of
googling just took me on de-tours ( google seems to think that X-windows
is the same as windows :) ).

I've found that X-windows has an 7x14 font but as I'm using XP
that does not help me a bit.
So anyone, I need either (6x13 &| 7x14):

1: Bitmap(or another uncompressed format will do) with characters in
ASCII range 0x20-0x7F
2: Font file for windows so i can generate the nessesary bitmap myself.
3: Large bat :) ( just kidding, just to check if you kept your
concentration )

Thanks in advance for any pointers,links etc.

PS And yes I've tried the terminal font in windows (to wide), console
fonts
(to wide), andale (to wide), etc etc.


/Tony

Have you tried Fr MacGhees HD44780 fone emulation. I do not know how he made
it, bit it might be a starting point. (appreciate you are working on a
graphics LCD, and this is a font emulation for windows). I can supply a copy
if need be.

Umm... It may be easy enough to write your own font.  I know that it
is possible, and I know that there are guides to doing it.  There are
also many font repositories on the web.  I assume you've looked
through most of those, though.  I think that your best bet may be to
write your own (And pos it of course :)

For Tony

If you have Basic on your computer, it has a 6x10, a 7 x 11, both TrueFont,
and a 7 x 12.  If I can help you with these let me know.

try this:

http://www.dafont.com/en/bitmap.php

this is bitmap font (a file by caracter), but the only thing they show on
pages is height (in pixel)

I needed a bitmapped font for a display
(http://www.embedinc.com/ourportfolio.shtml#eyeball) that was 10 x 16 and
ended up doing it myself.  It wasn't that hard at all, but it was definitely
worth writing a font compiler.  It allowed the graphics to be entered in
intuitive format, and it creates the gobblygook PIC assembler in the right
format.  Here is a small snippet from the font definition file:

char 65 "A"

- - * * * * * - - -
- * * * * * * * - -
* * * - - - * * * -
* * - - - - - * * -

Oh, X too good for you is it? ;)

Included in the attached zip file are the 6x13 and 7x14 bdf format fonts
from X, Microwindows format C header files generated from them, and the perl script which did the converting. It shouldn't be too hard to modify
the script to generate PIC assembly instead. I'm pretty sure the fonts are under the standard X license which is very liberal and shouldn't prevent you from including them in your product (unlike most other fonts
you'll find on the net or included with commercial products).

Here http://www.miim.com/documents/mono.zip you can find a very narrow,
monospaced, TrueType font by Corel Corporation.

Hi,
thanks to all who sent links/files etc I think I'll be alright for now
:)
haven't actually made the font def. yet but guessing that with the info I have that'll be no problems.

Yes thought of that but lazy as I am :) I planned to use Nikolai's
excellent
png->font-def utility. But if I didn't find any preexcisting font then
that would have
been my choice.

Thanks again,
