RedHat 9 (Linux i386) - man page for maketexpk (redhat section 1)

       mktexpk - create a PK file for a font

       mktexpk [options] font [redirect]

       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 Kpathsea: A library for  path  search-

       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

       mktexpk is typically called by other programs, rather than from the command line.

       mktexpk accepts the following options:

       --bdpi num
	      Set the base device resolution.

       --dpi num
	      Generate the font at resolution num.

       --help Print help message and exit.

       --mag mag
	      The Metafont magnification that corresponds to the combination of bdpi and dpi that
	      has been specified.

       --mfmode mode
	      The Metafont mode to use.

       --destdir dir
	      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 provide 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.

       mktexmf(1), mktextfm(1).
