       gftopk - convert generic font files to packed font files

       gftopk [ -v ] gf_file_name [ pk_file_name ]

       This  manual page is not meant to be exhaustive.  The complete documentation for this ver-
       sion of TeX can be found in the info file or manual Web2C: A TeX implementation.

       The gftopk program converts a generic font file output by, for example, mf(1), to a packed
       font  file  for use by DVI-reading programs. Packed font files (pk files) are much smaller
       than the corresponding gf files, so they are generally the font format of choice.

       The 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 TeX
       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 replac-
       ing gf.	For example, the input file cmr10.300gf would become cmr10.300pk.

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

       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  TEX-
       FONTS.  If that is not set, it uses the system default.

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

       Tomas  Rokicki  wrote  the program. It was published as part of the Metafontware technical
       report, available from the TeX Users Group.  Paul Richards originally ported it to Unix.
