PKTOGF(1)		    General Commands Manual		     PKTOGF(1)

NAME
       pktogf -	convert	packed font files to generic font files

SYNOPSIS
       pktogf [-v] pk_file_name	[gf_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  pktogf  program converts a packed font file	(pk) to	a generic font
       file (gf).  Packed font files are much smaller than  the	 corresponding
       gf files, but some DVI readers only understand gf files.

       The pk_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
       gf_file_name defaults to	the same (stripped) name as pk_file_name,  and
       it  is  placed  in the current working directory	with the gf suffix re-
       placing	pk.   For  example,  the  input	 file  io.300pk	 would	become
       io.300gf.

OPTIONS
       Unless  the -v switch is	given, pktogf operates silently.  With -v, the
       version number of the program and statistics about  the	unpacking  are
       output to stdout.

ENVIRONMENT
       pktogf  looks  for pk_file_name using the environment variable PKFONTS.
       If that is not set, it uses the variable	TEXPKS.	 If that is  not  set,
       it uses TEXFONTS.  If that is not set, it uses the system default.

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

       tion with web2c.
