GFTOPK(1)		    General Commands Manual		     GFTOPK(1)

NAME
       gftopk -	convert	generic	font files to packed font files

SYNOPSIS
       gftopk [-v] gf_file_name	[pk_file_name]

DESCRIPTION
       This  manual page is not	meant to be exhaustive.	 The complete documen-
       tation for this version of TeX can be found in the info file or	manual
       Web2C: A	TeX implementation.

       The gftopk program converts a generic font file output by, for example,
       mf(1), to a packed font file for	use by	DVI-reading  programs.	Packed
       font files (pk files) are much smaller than the corresponding gf	files,
       so they are generally the font format of	choice.

       The gf_file_name	on the command line must be complete. Because the res-
       olution	is  part of the	extension, it would not	make sense to append a
       default extension as is done with  TeX  or  DVI-reading	software.  The
       pk_file_name  defaults to the same (stripped) name as gf_file_name, and
       it is placed in the current working directory with the  pk  suffix  re-
       placing	gf.   For  example,  the  input	 file cmr10.300gf would	become
       cmr10.300pk.

OPTIONS
       Unless the -v switch is given, gftopk operates silently.	 With -v,  the
       version number of the program and statistics about the packing are out-
       put to stdout.

ENVIRONMENT
       gftopk looks for	gf_file_name first in the current directory.  If it is
       not  present  there, it uses the	environment variable GFFONTS.  If that
       is not set, it uses the variable	TEXFONTS.  If that is not set, it uses
       the system default.

       See tex(1) for the details of the searching.

AUTHORS
       Tomas  Rokicki wrote the	program. It was	published as part of the Meta-
       fontware	technical report, available from the TeX  Users	 Group.	  Paul
       Richards	originally ported it to	Unix.
