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.
