|PKTOGF(1)||General Commands Manual||PKTOGF(1)|
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.
See tex(1) for the details of the searching.
