Microcontroller Pixel Font

Adam Mayer of NYC Resistor is working on  script for processing small pixel fonts for use in 8-bit AVR applications. The 8-bit AVRs have very little memory, so he stored each 7-pixel-high column as a single byte.  The pixel data, along with the table that maps ASCII codes to character data, comes in at around 500 bytes.
