       opl2ofm  -  convert  Omega  and  TeX property-list files to font-metric


       opl2ofm [OPTIONS] OPLFILE[.opl] [OFMFILE[.ofm]]


       opl2ofm translates a  property-list  format  file,  OPLFILE,  into  the
       binary Omega Font Metric format.  The program writes to standard output
       (by default) or to a file specified as OFMFILE.

       The program also works with TeX PL  files,  producing  TeX  TFM  files.
       (opl2ofm is based on the WEB source code for pltotf(1).)

       According to the WEB documentation:

              The first PLtoTF 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 OPL2OFM.

       The primary authors of Omega are John  Plaice  <>
