    I always do it by a BASIC programme under DOS (yep I know
    this isn't pure but I have a font editor from S-DOS aka
    PTS-DOS (the free version)). The SFE.COM allows me to design
    8x8 8x12 8x14 8x16 fonts; the unicode table I write in the
    MC or VC (NC clone for DOS) editor; my BASIC pgm converts
    them together to PSFU. It's very easy once you read the psf
    It's a pity that I've to mkfs the DOS partitions of my HDDs
    every handfull of weeks, otherwise I'd put them onto a ftp
    server somewhere. But I call you to try it by yourself.
    (perl prolly isn't that easy coz it goes to binary values,
    but GW-BASIC is fine)
