pbmtopk - convert a PBM image into a packed (PK) format font
pbmtopk pkfile[.pk] tfmfile[.tfm] resolution [-s designsize] [-p num
param...] [-C codingscheme] [-F family] [-f optfile] [-c num] [-W

This program is part of Netpbm(1).
pbmtopk reads PBM images as input and produces a packed (PK) font file
and a TFM (TeX font metric) file as output. The resolution parameter
indicates the resolution of the font, in dots per inch. If the filename
’-’ is used for any of the filenames, pbmtopk uses Standard Input or
Sets the design size of the font, in TeX’s points (72.27pt to
the inch). The default design size is 1. The TFM parameters are
given as multiples of the design size.
-p num param...
Sets the first num font parameters for the font. The first seven
parameters are the slant, interword spacing, interword space
stretchability, interword space shrinkability, x-height, quad
width, and post-sentence extra space of the font. Math and sym-
bol fonts may have more parameters; see The TeXbook for a list
of these. Reasonable default values are chosen for parameters
which are not specified.
Sets the coding scheme comment in the TFM file.
Sets the font family comment in the TFM file.
Reads the file optfile, which should contain a lines of the
filename xoff yoff horiz vert width height depth ital
The PBM files specified by the filename parameters are inserted
consecutively in the font with the specified attributes. If any
of the attributes are omitted, or replaced with ’*’, a default
value will be calculated from the size of the bitmap. The set-
tings of the -W, -H, -D, -I, -h, -v, -x, and -y options do not
affected characters created in this way. The character number
can be changed by including a line starting with ’=’, followed
by the new number. Lines beginning with ’%’ or ’#’ are ignored.
-c num Sets the character number of the next bitmap encountered to num.
Sets the TFM width of the next character to width (in design
Sets the TFM height of the next character to height (in design
Sets the TFM depth of the next character to depth (in design
Sets the italic correction of the next character to ital (in
design size multiples).
Sets the horizontal escapement of the next character to horiz
Sets the vertical escapement of the next character to vert (in
Sets the horizontal offset of the next character to xoff (in
Sets the vertical offset of the next character to yoff (in pix-
els, from the top row).
