PK2BM(1) General Commands Manual PK2BM(1)
pk2bm - create a bitmap from a TeX pkfont
pk2bm [-bh] [-Wwidth] [-Hheight] -cchar pkfont
pk2bm [-bh] [-Wwidth] [-Hheight] -ooctchar pkfont
This program generates a bitmap (ASCII file) which can be used to cre-
ate X11 applications. The bitmap file consists 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 hexadec-
imal bitmap dump is generated.
The -W and/or -H options can be used to create a bitmap of respecti-
vally `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.
