As a special service "Fossies" has tried to format the requested text file into HTML format (style: standard) with prefixed line numbers. Alternatively you can here view or download the uninterpreted source code file.

    1 This program converts bitmap fonts to a homegrown outline format, bezier
    2 (BZR).  The program `bzrto' converts that format to something usable for
    3 typesetting.

    5 We used two main sources in writing the program:

    8   author = "Philip J. Schneider",
    9   title = "Phoenix: An Interactive Curve Design System Based on the
   10            Automatic Fitting of Hand-Sketched Curves",
   11   school = inst-u-wash,

   13 }

   17   title = "Curve-fitting with Piecewise Parametric Cubics",
   18   journal = j-comp-graphics,

   20   volume = 17,
   21   number = 3,
   22   month = jul,
   23   pages = "229-239",
   24 }
   25 
   26 We had access to the code for Phoenix, thanks to Philip, but none of our
   27 code is based on his (mostly because his task was allow interactive
   28 sketching, and ours to fit bitmap characters, and the two require
   29 different data structures).  The general outline of the fitting
   30 algorithm does come from Phoenix.
