       pktogf - convert packed font files to generic font files


       pktogf [-v] pk_file_name [gf_file_name]


       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 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.


       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.


       pktogf looks for pk_file_name using the environment variable 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.
