Bdfresize is a command to magnify or reduce fonts which are described

COMMENT lines are inserted to the result font.  FONT name is modified
depending on the resize factor if the name is described in XLFD format.
SIZE, FONTBOUNDINGBIX, SWIDTH, DWIDTH, BBX and some property lines are
also modified.  Other lines are copied from source.  If a syntax error
occurs in a source font, bdfresize notices it and stops the whole
