NAME

       mktextfm - create a TFM file for a font


SYNOPSIS

       mktextfm [options] font


DESCRIPTION

       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.

       mktextfm  is used to generate a tfm file from the Metafont source files
       for font, if possible.  If destdir is given, the generated file will be
       installed there, otherwise a (rather complicated) heuristic is used.

       The name of the generated file is printed on standard output.

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


OPTIONS

       mktextfm accepts the following options:

       --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.

       --help Print help message and exit.

       --version
              Print version information and exit.
