If a GF (Generic Font) bitmap file is also generated, as is typical with ΜF, it is converted to PK (Packed Font) and installed similarly.
The full pathname of the generated file is printed on standard output.
If available, the mf-nowin(1) variant of Metafont is used to generate fonts to avoid the possibility of online display.
mktextfm is typically called by other programs, via Kpathsea, rather than from the command line.
- --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.
- Print help message and exit successfully.
- Print version information and exit successfully.
For more about the encodings of Metafont fonts, see the section ``Bitmap font encodings'' in the Dvips manual (e.g., https://tug.org/texinfohtml/dvips.html).
The many other environment variables and various configuration files that control a TeX system also affect the behavior of mktextfm, as usual.
