PKTOGF(1)                                               PKTOGF(1)

NAME
       pktogf - convert packed font files to generic font files

SYNOPSIS
       pktogf [ -v ] pk_file_name [ gf_file_name ]

DESCRIPTION
       This  manual page is not meant to be exhaustive.  The com-
       plete documentation for this version of TeX can  be  found
       in the info file or manual Web2C: A TeX implementation.

       The  pktogf  program converts a packed font file (pk) to a
       generic font  file  (gf).   Packed  font  files  are  much
       smaller  than  the  corresponding  gf  files, but some DVI
       readers only understand gf files.

       The pk_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  gf_file_name
       defaults to the same (stripped) name as pk_file_name,  and
       it  is placed in the current working directory with the gf
       suffix replacing pk.  For example, the input file io.300pk
       would become io.300gf.

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

ENVIRONMENT
       pktogf  looks for pk_file_name using the environment vari-
       able PKFONTS.  If that is not set, it  uses  the  variable
       TEXPKS.  If that is not set, it uses TEXFONTS.  If that is
       not set, it uses the system default.

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