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


       opl2ofm [ OPTION... ] 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

       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 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 OPL2OFM.
