NAME

       ttf2pk - convert a TrueType font into TeX's PK format

SYNOPSIS

       ttf2pk [-q] [-n] font-name resolution
       ttf2pk -t [-q] font-name
       ttf2pk --version | --help

DESCRIPTION

       This  program  converts  a TrueType font into a PK file; the created font can then be used
       with TeX or LaTeX.

       CJKV (Chinese/Japanese/Korean/old Vietnamese) subfonts as  created  by  ttf2tfm  are  also
       supported.

       ttf2pk always assumes 10pt as the design size for the written TeX font.

PARAMETERS

       -q     This  optional  switch  makes ttf2pk quiet.  It suppresses any informational output
              except warning and error messages.

       -n     Use only `.pk' as the extension instead of `.<resolution>pk'.

       -t     Test for the existence of font-name.  Returns 0  on  success  and  prints  out  the
              corresponding  line  of  a  map file (default: ttfonts.map), provided the -q switch
              isn't set.

       font-name
              The TeX name of the font.  ttf2pk looks this name up in a map file (see below)  for
              further information how to process the font.

       resolution
              The  resolution,  given  in  dots per inch.  Currently the horizontal resolution is
              equal to the vertical resolution.  The design size is always assumed to be 10pt.

       --version
              Shows  the  current  version  of  ttf2pk  and  the   used   file   search   library
              (e.g. kpathsea).

       --help Shows usage information.

       Environment variables for file searching are described in the manual page of ttf2tfm.

THE CONFIGURATION FILE

       ttf2pk  uses  a  small  configuration  file  called ttf2pk.cfg; in each line it contains a
       keyword with its value, separated by whitespace.  Comment lines can start with any of  the
       following characters: `*', `#', `;', and `%'.  Leading whitespace is ignored.

       Currently,  only  one keyword, `map', is recognized in this file; it takes a map file name
       as a parameter.  If no extension is given to the map file  name,  .map  is  appended.   No
       whitespace is allowed in the map file name.  The `map' keyword can be given more than once
       to specify multiple map files; if the map file name is prepended by a  plus  sign,  it  is
       added to the list of map files to be used.  Example:

         map  foo
         map +bar

       This makes ttf2pk to first read foo.map, then bar.map.

       If the configuration file is not found, ttf2pk tries to use ttfonts.map instead.

MAP FILES

       Parameters  specified  to ttf2tfm are preserved for ttf2pk in map files—ttf2tfm writes out
       to standard output, as the last line, a proper entry for a map file.

       As an example, a call to

         ttf2tfm arial -p T1.enc -s 0.25 -P 1 -E 0 arials

       will produce the following line:

         arials   arial Slant=0.25 Pid=1 Eid=0 Encoding=T1.enc

       See ttf2tfm(1) and afm2tfm(1) of the dvips package for a detailed description of  encoding
       files.

       Here a table listing the various ttf2tfm parameters and the corresponding entries in a map
       file:

           -s                  Slant
           -e                  Extend
           -p                  Encoding
           -f                  Fontindex
           -P                  Pid
           -E                  Eid
           -n                  PS=Yes
           -N                  PS=Only
           -R                  Replacement
           -x                  Rotate=Yes
           -y                  Y-Offset

       Single replacement glyph names given to ttf2tfm with `-r old-glyphname new-glyphname'  are
       directly specified with `old-glyphname=new-glyphname'.  They will be ignored if in subfont
       mode or if no encoding file is given.

       One additional parameter in a map file is unique to ttf2pk: `Hinting', which can take  the
       values  `On'  or  `Off'.   Some  fonts  (e.g. the  CJK  part of cyberbit.ttf) are rendered
       incorrectly if hinting is activated.  Default is `On' (you can also use `Yes', `No',  `1',
       and `0').

       For  a  description  of  subfonts (i.e., entries of the form `<namestem>@<sfd-filename>@')
       please refer to ttf2tfm(1).

       The format of a map file is simple.  Each line defines a font; first comes  the  TeX  font
       name,  then its TrueType font file name, followed by the parameters in any order.  Case is
       significant (even for parameter names); the parameters are separated from its values by an
       equal  sign,  with whitespace possibly surrounding it.  ttf2pk reads in all map files line
       by line in the order given in the  configuration  file,  continuing  until  the  TeX  font
       specified  on  the  command line is found, otherwise the programs exits with error code 2.
       Thus you can use any character invalid in a TeX font name to start a comment line.

       You can use `\' as the final character of a line to indicate that the input  is  continued
       on the next line.  The backslash and the following newline character will be removed.

       ttf2pk will abort if it can't find or read the TeX font metrics file of the given TeX font
       name.

RETURN VALUE

       If the call was successful, 0 will be returned.  In case of error, the return value  is 1.
       Finally,  if the font can't be found in the map files, 2 is returned.  This simplifies the
       inclusion of ttf2pk into scripts like mktexpk for automatic font generation.
