CentOS 7.0 - man page for pltotf (centos section 1)

PLTOTF(1)				       General Commands Manual					    PLTOTF(1)

NAME
pltotf - convert property list files to TeX font metric (tfm) format
SYNOPSIS
pltotf [-verbose] pl_file_name[.pl] [tfm_file_name[.tfm]]
DESCRIPTION
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 pltotf program translates a (human-oriented) property list file to a (program-oriented) TeX font metric file. Thus, after editing the property list file, a TFM file can be generated for use with, for example, tex(1). The pl_file_name is extended with .pl if it lacks a suffix. No path searching is done. If no tfm_file_name is given, the basename of pl_file_name with suffix .tfm is used; otherwise tfm_file_name is extended with .tfm if it lacks a suffix.
OPTIONS
Without the -verbose option, pltotf operates silently. With it, a banner and progress report are printed on stdout.
