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


       ofm2opl [ OPTION... ] OFMNAME[.ofm] [ OPLFILE[.opl] ]


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

       The  program  also works with TeX TFM files, producing TeX PL files.  (ofm2opl is based on
       the WEB source code for tftopl(1).)


              output character codes according to TYPE, which can be  either  `hex'  or  `ascii'.
              Default  is  `hex'.   ascii  specifes  all  ASCII  letters and digits; hex gets you
              everything else.

       -help  display a brief summary of syntax and options

              display progress reports

              output version information and exit

       According to the WEB documentation:

              The  first  TFtoPL  program  was  designed  by  Leo  Guibas  in the summer 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, resulting in the new program OFM2OPL.
