PK2BM(1)		    General Commands Manual		      PK2BM(1)

NAME
       pk2bm - create a	bitmap from a TeX pkfont

SYNOPSIS:
       pk2bm [-bh] [-Wwidth] [-Hheight]	-cchar pkfont

       pk2bm [-bh] [-Wwidth] [-Hheight]	-ooctchar pkfont

DESCRIPTION
       This  program generates a bitmap	(ASCII file) which can be used to cre-
       ate X11 applications. The bitmap	file consists of  all  pixels  of  the
       specified  character  (via  the -c or -o	option)	from the given pkfont.
       The format is described in bitmap(X11).

       The pkfont is a packed fontfile generated by gftopk(TeX)	from a gffont.
       A  gffont  is the output	of METAFONT a program to design	fonts in a de-
       vice independant	way.

       With the	-b flag	a bitmap is generated in which all  black  pixels  are
       drawn as	a `*' and all white bits as a `.'. With	the -h flag a hexadec-
       imal bitmap dump	is generated.

       The -W and/or -H	options	can be used to create a	 bitmap	 of  respecti-
       vally  `width'  and `height' pixels. The	pk-bitmap will in this case be
       centered	according to these new dimensions.

       The output is written to	the standard output.
