PK2BM(1)                                                              PK2BM(1)



NAME
       pk2bm - create a bitmap from a TeX pkfont

SYNOPSIS:
       pk2bm [-bh] [-Wwidth] [-Hheight] -cchar pkfont

       pk2bm [-bh] [-Wwidth] [-Hheight] -ooctchar pkfont

DESCRIPTION
       This program generates a bitmap (ASCII file) which can be used to create X11 applications. The bitmap file con-
       sists of all pixels of the specified character (via the -c or -o option) from the given pkfont. The  format  is
       described in bitmap(X11).

       The  pkfont  is  a packed fontfile generated by gftopk(TeX) from a gffont. A gffont is the output of METAFONT a
       program to design fonts in a device independant way.

       With the -b flag a bitmap is generated in which all black pixels are drawn as a '*' and all  white  bits  as  a
       '.'. With the -h flag a hexadecimal bitmap dump is generated.

       The  -W  and/or -H options can be used to create a bitmap of respectivally 'width' and 'height' pixels. The pk-
       bitmap will in this case be centered according to these new dimensions.

       The output is written to the standard output.
