       gftopk - convert generic font files to packed font files

       gftopk [ -v ] gf_file_name [ pk_file_name ]

       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 Web2C: A TeX implementation.

       The gftopk program converts a generic font file output by, for example, mf(1), to a packed font file for use by
       DVI-reading  programs.  Packed  font files (pk files) are much smaller than the corresponding gf files, so they
       are generally the font format of choice.

       The gf_file_name on the command line must be complete. Because the resolution is  part  of  the  extension,  it
       would  not  make  sense  to  append  a  default  extension  as  is  done  with TeX or DVI-reading software. The
       pk_file_name defaults to the same (stripped) name as gf_file_name, and it is  placed  in  the  current  working
       directory with the pk suffix replacing gf.  For example, the input file cmr10.300gf would become cmr10.300pk.

       Unless  the  -v  switch  is  given,  gftopk  operates silently.  With -v, the version number of the program and
       statistics about the packing are output to stdout.

       gftopk looks for gf_file_name first in the current directory.  If it is not present there, it uses the environ-
       ment  variable  GFFONTS.   If  that is not set, it uses the variable TEXFONTS.  If that is not set, it uses the
       system default.

       See tex(1) for the details of the searching.

       Tomas Rokicki wrote the program. It was published as part of the Metafontware technical report, available  from
       the TeX Users Group.  Paul Richards originally ported it to Unix.
