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 documen-
       tation 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 exam-
       ple, 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 ban-
       ner and progress report are printed on stdout.
