       ppltotf, uppltotf - Create Japanese pTeX font metric (JFM)


       ppltotf [options] pl_file_name[.pl] [tfm_file_name[.tfm]]


       The ppltotf program translates a Japanese property list (JPL) file to a Japanese pTeX font
       metric (JFM) file.  The resulting JFM file can be used with pTeX and e-pTeX.

       The uppltotf program is a Unicode-enabled version of ppltotf.  The resulting JFM file  can
       be used with upTeX and e-upTeX.

       In the following sections, we refer to these programs as (u)ppltotf.

       (u)ppltotf is upper compatible with pltotf; if the input PL file is for roman fonts, it is
       translated into an ordinary TeX font metric (TFM) file.  The  difference  between  ppltotf
       and  uppltotf  lies in the output encoding: ppltotf always outputs JIS-encoded JFM; on the
       other hand, uppltotf outputs Unicode-encoded JFM by default.


       Compared to pltotf, the following option is added to (u)ppltotf.

       -kanji string
              Sets the input Japanese Kanji code.  The string  can  be  one  of  the  followings:
              euc (EUC-JP),   jis (ISO-2022-JP),  sjis (Shift_JIS),  utf8 (UTF-8),  uptex (UTF-8;
              uppltotf only).

       When one of euc, jis, sjis or utf8 is specified, both ppltotf and uppltotf output  a  JIS-
       encoded JFM.  When uptex is specified with uppltotf, it outputs a Unicode-encoded JFM.
