gftype - translate a generic font file for humans to read


gftype [-i] [-m] gf_file_name [output_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 gftype program translates a gf (generic font) file output by, for example, mf(1), to a
file that humans can read. It also serves as a gf file-validating program (i.e., if
gftype can read it, it's correct) and as an example of a gf-reading program for other
software that wants to read gf files.

The gf_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. If no output_file_name is specified, the output goes to stdout.


The output file includes bitmap images of the characters, if -i is given on the command
line, and a symbolic listing of the gf commands, if -m is specified.


gftype looks for gf_file_name using the environment variable GFFONTS. If that is not set,
it uses the variable TEXFONTS. If that is not set, it uses the system default.
