       pbmtopk - convert a PBM image into a packed (PK) format font

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

       This program is part of Netpbm(1).

       pbmtopk reads PBM images as input and produces a packed (PK) font file and a TFM (TeX font metric) file as out-
       put. The resolution parameter indicates the resolution of the font, in dots per inch. If the  filename  '-'  is
       used for any of the filenames, pbmtopk uses Standard Input or Standard Output.

       -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 size.

       -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 shrinkability, 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. Reasonable 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 spec-
              ified 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 multiples).

       -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 row).
