I have included in this directory what I believe to be the right sort of thing to match what was there already. This is not to say that I'm terribly proud of it, but it seems about right. The pk300 fonts were generated using CanonCX mode from Karl Berry's modes.mf The pk300w fonts were generated using RicohFortyEighty mode from Karl Berry's modes.mf The pk240 fonts were generated using CanonLBPTen mode from Karl Berry's modes.mf (this differs from the "CanonLBP" used in the previous version in name only). The pk120 fonts were generated with the same parameters as were used in the previous version, though nothing with those parameters exists in Karl Berry's modes.mf; by analogy with the previous version, I've called this mode OneTwoZero. I was not terribly surprised that several files gave me metafont errors with this mode; the most (apparently) serious were cmss12 and cmssi12, though several of the smaller-sized fonts had strange paths of one sort or another. I've included a slightly hacked copy of a Makefile which used to be in the directory ../gf300; I had to hack it because the original neither reflected the current `best' thinking about the way TeX systems should be organised, nor the way they're organised on our discs (which is different for hysterical raisins).
cm-pk – PK bitmaps of the Computer Modern fonts
These are generated bitmap versions of the Computer Modern fonts, at resolutions and using METAFONT settings defined long ago. (The resolutions available are 120 and 240dpi, and 300dpi for both write-black and write-white printer engines.)
Since most modern distributions will generate any PK font needed, on the fly at output time, the present distribution is of little more than academic interest.
