OFM2OPL(14 April 2016)                                  OFM2OPL(14 April 2016)




NAME

       ofm2opl  -  convert  Omega  and  TeX font-metric files to property-list
       files



SYNOPSIS

       ofm2opl [options] ofmname[.ofm] [oplfile[.opl]]



DESCRIPTION

       ofm2opl translates a binary Omega Font Metrics file,  ofmname,  into  a
       human-readable property-list form.  The program writes to standard out-
       put (by default) or to a file specified as oplfile.

       The program also works with TeX TFM files, producing TeX PL files.



OPTIONS

       (Same as ovf2ovp).


       -charcode-format=type
              output character codes according to type, either `hex',  `octal'
              or  `ascii'.   Default  is  `hex'; `ascii' says to use ASCII for
              letters and digits, hex for all else.

       -char-format=stype
              output character codes  according  to  stype,  either  `num'  or
              `ascii'.  Default  is  `num';  `ascii'  as  in -charcode-format.
              (These two redundant options both exist only for historical com-
              patibility.)

       -num-format=ntype
              output  numbers  according  to  ntype,  either `hex' or `octal';
              default is hex.

       -text-format=ttype
              output coding scheme  and  family  according  to  ttype,  either
              `mixed' or `upper' case; default is mixed.

       -help  display a brief summary of syntax and options

       -verbose
              display progress reports

       -version
              output version information and exit

       also check if the same bug is present in tftopl(1).  General discussion

AUTHOR

       According to the WEB documentation:

              The first TFtoPL program was designed by Leo Guibas in the  sum-
              mer of 1978.  Contributions by Frank Liang, Doug Wyatt, and Lyle
              Ramshaw also had a significant effect on the  evolution  of  the
              present code.

              Extensions for an enhanced ligature mechanism were added by D.E.
              Knuth in 1989.

              Extensions to handle extended font metric files  (``OFM'')  were
              added  by John Plaice in December 1995 and January 1996, result-
              ing in the new program OFM2OPL.

       ofm2opl is based on the WEB source code for tftopl(1),  although  nowa-
       days it is a link to omfonts, implemented entirely in C.

       The  primary  authors  of Omega are John Plaice and Yannis Haralambous.
       Omega (and Aleph) are now maintained as part of TeX Live.
