Portable Compiled Format
Portable Compiled Format (PCF) is a bitmap font format used by Xserver in its core font system, and has been used for decades. PCF fonts are usually installed, by default, on most Unix based operating systems, and are used in terminals such as xterm. PCF fonts replaced BDF due to a slight efficiency increase, however most applications have moved on to scalable fonts.
