RedHat 9 (Linux i386) - man page for pltotf (redhat 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 tfm_file_name
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) Web property list file to a (program-oriented) TeX font met- ric file. Thus, after editing the property list file, a TFM file can be generated for use with, for example, tex(1). Both the pl_file_name and the tfm_file_name must be complete; no adding of default extensions or path search- ing is done.
OPTIONS
Without the -verbose option, pltotf operates silently. With it, a banner and progress report are printed on stdout.
