File: web2c.info, Node: pktogf invocation, Next: pktype invocation, Prev: gftopk invocation, Up: Font utilities 10.3 PKtoGF: Packed to generic font conversion ============================================== PKtoGF converts a packed font (PK) file to a generic font (GF) file. Since PK format is much more compact than GF format, the most likely reason to do this is to run GFtype (*note gftype invocation::) on the result, so you can see the bitmap images. Also, a few old utility programs do not support PK format. Synopsis: pktogf [OPTION]... PKNAME.DPI[pk] [GFFILE] The font PKNAME is searched for in the usual places (*note Glyph lookup: (kpathsea)Glyph lookup.). To see all the relevant paths, set the environment variable `KPATHSEA_DEBUG' to `-1' before running the program. The suffix `pk' is supplied if not already present. This suffix is not an extension; no `.' precedes it: for instance, `cmr10.600pk'. If GFFILE is not specified, the output is written to the basename of `PKNAME.DPIgf', e.g., `pktogf /wherever/cmr10.600pk' creates `./cmr10.600gf'. The only options are `--verbose', `--help', and `--version' (*note Common options::).
