       pltotf - convert property list files to TeX font metric (tfm) format

       pltotf [ -verbose ] pl_file_name tfm_file_name

       This  manual page is not meant to be exhaustive.  The complete documentation for this ver-
       sion 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-ori-
       ented) TeX font metric 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  exten-
       sions or path searching is done.

       Without	the  -verbose  option,	pltotf operates silently.  With it, a banner and progress
       report are printed on stdout.

       Donald  E.  Knuth  wrote  the  program.	It was published as part of the TeXware technical
       report, available from the TeX Users Group.  Howard Trickey,  Pavel  Curtis,  and  Richard
       Furuta originally ported it to Unix.
