12.1.1 BPL preamble

The preamble of a BPL file consists of the following three properties:

  1. (fontfile string). This merely documents the filename of the BZR font from which BZRto made this BPL file. It is ignored.

  2. (fontcomment string). This is an arbitrary string written as the "comment" in the BZR file. BZR-reading programs ignore this comment. It typically identifies the source and time of creation. If string is longer than 255 characters, it is truncated (due to limitations of the BZR format).

  3. (designsize real). The design size of the font, in printer's points.
