MKTEXTFM(1)						      General Commands Manual						       MKTEXTFM(1)

NAME
mktextfm - create a TFM file for a font
SYNOPSIS
mktextfm [options] font
DESCRIPTION
This manual page is not meant to be exhaustive. The complete documentation for this version of TeX can be found in the info file or manual Kpathsea: A library for path searching. mktextfm is used to generate a tfm file from the Metafont source files for font, if possible. If destdir is given, the generated file will be installed there, otherwise a (rather complicated) heuristic is used. The name of the generated file is printed on standard output. mktextfm is typically called by other programs, rather than from the command line.
OPTIONS
mktextfm accepts the following options: --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. --help Print help message and exit. --version Print version information and exit.
