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

pbmtopk(1)									       pbmtopk(1)

       pbmtopk - convert a portable bitmap into a packed (PK) format font

       pbmtopk	pkfile[.pk]  tfmfile[.tfm] resolution [-s designsize] [-p num param...]  [-C cod-
       ingscheme] [-F family] [-f optfile] [-c num] [-W width] [-H height] [-D depth]  [-I  ital]
       [-h horiz] [-v vert] [-x xoff] [-y yoff] [pbmfile]...

       Reads  portable bitmaps as input, and produces a packed (PK) font file and a TFM (TeX font
       metric) file as output. The resolution parameter indicates the resolution of the font,  in
       dots  per  inch.  If the filename "-" is used for any of the filenames, the standard input
       stream (or standard output where appropriate) will be used.

       -s designsize
	      Sets the design size of the font, in  TeX's  points  (72.27pt  to  the  inch).  The
	      default  design  size is 1. The TFM parameters are given as multiples of the design

       -p num param...
	      Sets the first num font parameters for the font. The first seven parameters are the
	      slant,  interword spacing, interword space stretchability, interword space shrinka-
	      bility, x-height, quad width, and post-sentence extra space of the font.	Math  and
	      symbol fonts may have more parameters; see The TeXbook for a list of these. Reason-
	      able default values are chosen for parameters which are not specified.

       -C codingscheme
	      Sets the coding scheme comment in the TFM file.

       -F family
	      Sets the font family comment in the TFM file.

       -f optfile
	      Reads the file optfile, which should contain a lines of the form:

		 filename xoff yoff horiz vert width height depth ital

	      The pbm files specified by the filename parameters are  inserted	consecutively  in
	      the  font  with  the specified attributes. If any of the attributes are omitted, or
	      replaced with "*", a default value will be calculated from the size of the  bitmap.
	      The  settings  of  the  -W,  -H, -D, -I, -h, -v, -x, and -y options do not affected
	      characters created in this way.  The character number can be changed by including a
	      line  starting  with  "=", followed by the new number.  Lines beginning with "%" or
	      "#" are ignored.

       -c num Sets the character number of the next bitmap encountered to num.

       -W width
	      Sets the TFM width of the next character to width (in design size multiples).

       -H height
	      Sets the TFM height of the next character to height (in design size multiples).

       -D depth
	      Sets the TFM depth of the next character to depth (in design size multiples).

       -I ital
	      Sets the italic correction of the next character to ital	(in  design  size  multi-

       -h horiz
	      Sets the horizontal escapement of the next character to horiz (in pixels).

       -v vert
	      Sets the vertical escapement of the next character to vert (in pixels).

       -x xoff
	      Sets the horizontal offset of the next character to xoff (in pixels).

       -y yoff
	      Sets  the  vertical  offset  of the next character to yoff (in pixels, from the top
