purpose of this command is to be able to easily read the contents of a plist file, no matter what format it is in.
-lint Check the named property list files for syntax errors. This is the default command option if none is specified.
-convert fmt Convert the named file to the indicated format and write back to the file system. If the file can't be loaded due to invalid

-s Don't print anything on success.
-r For JSON, add whitespace and indentation to make the output more human-readable.
-o path Specify an alternate path name for the result of the -convert operation; this option is only useful with a single file to be
converted. Specifying - as the path outputs to stdout.
