GFTYPE(1)		    General Commands Manual		     GFTYPE(1)

NAME
       gftype -	translate a generic font file for humans to read

SYNOPSIS
       gftype [-i] [-m]	gf_file_name [output_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  gftype  program translates a gf (generic font) file	output by, for
       example,	mf(1), to a file that humans can read.	It also	serves as a gf
       file-validating program (i.e., if gftype	can read it, it's correct) and
       as an example of	a gf-reading program for other software	that wants  to
       read gf files.

       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. If no
       output_file_name	is specified, the output goes to stdout.

OPTIONS
       The output file includes	bitmap images of  the  characters,  if	-i  is
       given  on  the command line, and	a symbolic listing of the gf commands,
       if -m is	specified.

ENVIRONMENT
       gftype looks for	gf_file_name using 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 ALSO
       dvitype(1), pktype(1).

AUTHORS
       David Fuchs and Don Knuth wrote the program.  It	was published as  part
       of  the	Metafontware  technical	 report,  available from the TeX Users
       Group.  Paul Richards originally	ported it to Unix.
