First, Google "bitmap specification" and find links like http://netghost.narod.ru/gff/vendspec/micbmp/bmp.txt and http://www.fortunecity.com/skyscrape.../bmpffrmt.html. They explain how bitmaps are stored as text. Next, figure out how you are going to make your numbers into bitmaps, then bitmaps into text. Write out a file with all the data, and you are done.

There are only a few steps, but the steps are kind of doozies.
