mktexpk is used to generate a pk file from the Metafont source files or
type1 sources for font, if possible.
If redirect is given, it must be string of the form >&n where n is the
number of the file descriptor which is to receive, instead of standard
output, the name of the generated file.
mktexpk is typically called by other programs, rather than from the
mktexpk accepts the following options:
Set the base device resolution.
Generate the font at resolution num.
--help Print help message and exit.
The Metafont magnification that corresponds to the combination
of bdpi and dpi that has been specified.
The Metafont mode to use.
A directory name. If the directory is absolute, it is used as-
is. Otherwise, it is appended to the root destination directory
set in the script.
Print version information and exit.
If the mode is not specified, mktexpk tries to determine it from bdpi.
The manner in which this is done is primitive. Since bpdi doesn’t pro-
vide sufficient information to uniquely determine a mode it is strongly
recommended that it be specified explicitly.
If the mode and bpdi don’t match, the mode is discarded.
The dpi parameter is redundant, but is not checked for consistency.
Worse, the program will fail if the wrong dpi is specified.
