gftopk - convert generic font files to packed font files
This manual page is not meant to be exhaustive. The complete
documentation for this version of T\h-0.1667m\v0.20vE\v-0.20v\h-0.125mX can be found in the info file
Web2C: A TeX implementation.
gftopk program converts a generic font file output by, for example,
packed font file for use by DVI-reading programs. Packed
(pk files) are much smaller than the corresponding
so they are generally the font format of choice.
gf_file_name on the command line must be complete. Because
the resolution is part of the extension, it would not make
sense to append a default extension as is done with T\h-0.1667m\v0.20vE\v-0.20v\h-0.125mX or
DVI-reading software. The
pk_file_name defaults to the same (stripped) name as
gf_file_name, and it is placed in the current
working directory with the
pk suffix replacing
gf. For example, the input file
cmr10.300gf would become
-v switch is given,
gftopk operates silently. With
-v, the version number of the program and statistics about the
packing are output to
gftopk looks for
gf_file_name first in the current directory. If it is not present there, it uses the
environment variable GFFONTS. If that is not set, it uses the variable
TEXFONTS. If that is not set, it uses the system default.

Donald E. Knuth et al.,
Tomas Rokicki wrote the program. It was published as
