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:
Set the base device resolution.
Generate the font at resolution num.
--help Print help message and exit.
The Metafont magnification that corresponds to the combination of bdpi and dpi that
has been specified.
The Metafont mode to use.
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.
