       mktexpk - create	a PK file for a	font

       mktexpk [options] font [redirect]

       This  manual page is not	meant to be exhaustive.	 The complete documen-
       tation for this version of TeX can be found in the info file or	manual
       Kpathsea: A library for path searching.

       mktexpk is used to generate a pk	file from the Metafont source files or
       type1 sources for font, if possible.

       If redirect is given, it	must be	string of the form >&n where n is  the
       number  of the file descriptor which is to receive, instead of standard
       output, the name	of the generated file.

       mktexpk is typically called by other programs,  rather  than  from  the
       command line.

       mktexpk accepts the following options:

       --bdpi num
	      Set the base device resolution.

       --dpi num
	      Generate the font	at resolution num.

       --help Print help message and exit.

       --mag mag
	      The  Metafont  magnification that	corresponds to the combination
	      of bdpi and dpi that has been specified.

       --mfmode	mode
	      The Metafont mode	to use.

       --destdir dir
	      A	directory name.	If the directory is absolute, it is  used  as-
	      is.  Otherwise, it is appended to	the root destination directory
	      set in the script.

	      Print version information	and exit.

       If the mode is not specified, mktexpk tries to determine	it from	 bdpi.
       The manner in which this	is done	is primitive.  Since bpdi doesn't pro-
       vide sufficient information to uniquely determine a mode	it is strongly
       recommended that	it be specified	explicitly.

       If the mode and bpdi don't match, the mode is discarded.

       The  dpi	 parameter  is	redundant, but is not checked for consistency.
       Worse, the program will fail if the wrong dpi is	specified.

       mktexmf(1), mktextfm(1).
