       pbmtopk - convert a portable bitmap into a packed (PK) format font

       pbmtopk	pkfile[.pk]  tfmfile[.tfm]  resolution [-s designsize] [-p num
       param...]  [-C codingscheme] [-F family]	 [-f  optfile]	[-c  num]  [-W
       width]  [-H height] [-D depth] [-I ital] [-h horiz] [-v vert] [-x xoff]
       [-y yoff] [pbmfile]...

       Reads portable bitmaps as input, and produces a packed (PK)  font  file
       and  a  TFM  (TeX font metric) file as output. The resolution parameter
       indicates the resolution of the font, in dots per inch. If the filename
       "-"  is	used  for  any of the filenames, the standard input stream (or
       standard output where appropriate) will be used.

       -s designsize
	      Sets the design size of the font, in TeX's  points  (72.27pt  to
	      the  inch). The default design size is 1. The TFM parameters are
	      given as multiples of the design size.

       -p num param...
	      Sets the first num font parameters for the font. The first seven
	      parameters  are  the  slant,  interword spacing, interword space
	      stretchability, interword space  shrinkability,  x-height,  quad
	      width,  and post-sentence extra space of the font. Math and sym‐
	      bol fonts may have more parameters; see The TeXbook for  a  list
	      of  these.  Reasonable  default values are chosen for parameters
	      which are not specified.

       -C codingscheme
	      Sets the coding scheme comment in the TFM file.

       -F family
	      Sets the font family comment in the TFM file.

       -f optfile
	      Reads the file optfile, which should  contain  a	lines  of  the

		 filename xoff yoff horiz vert width height depth ital

	      The  pbm files specified by the filename parameters are inserted
	      consecutively in the font with the specified attributes. If  any
	      of  the  attributes are omitted, or replaced with "*", a default
	      value will be calculated from the size of the bitmap.  The  set‐
	      tings  of	 the -W, -H, -D, -I, -h, -v, -x, and -y options do not
	      affected characters created in this way.	The  character	number
	      can  be  changed by including a line starting with "=", followed
	      by the new number.  Lines beginning with "%" or "#" are ignored.

       -c num Sets the character number of the next bitmap encountered to num.

       -W width
	      Sets the TFM width of the next character	to  width  (in	design
	      size multiples).

       -H height
	      Sets  the	 TFM height of the next character to height (in design
	      size multiples).

       -D depth
	      Sets the TFM depth of the next character	to  depth  (in	design
	      size multiples).

       -I ital
	      Sets  the	 italic	 correction  of the next character to ital (in
	      design size multiples).

       -h horiz
	      Sets the horizontal escapement of the next  character  to	 horiz
	      (in pixels).

       -v vert
	      Sets  the	 vertical escapement of the next character to vert (in

       -x xoff
	      Sets the horizontal offset of the next  character	 to  xoff  (in

       -y yoff
	      Sets  the vertical offset of the next character to yoff (in pix‐
	      els, from the top row).
