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
       replacing 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.
