       pltotf - convert property list files to TeX font metric (tfm) format


       pltotf [ -verbose ] pl_file_name tfm_file_name


       This  manual  page  is  not  meant  to be exhaustive.  The complete documentation for this
       version of TeX can be found in the info file or manual Web2C: A TeX implementation.

       The pltotf program translates a (human-oriented) Web property list  file  to  a  (program-
       oriented) TeX font metric file. Thus, after editing the property list file, a TFM file can
       be generated for use with, for example, tex(1).

       Both the pl_file_name and the  tfm_file_name  must  be  complete;  no  adding  of  default
       extensions or path searching is done.


       Without  the  -verbose  option,  pltotf operates silently.  With it, a banner and progress
       report are printed on stdout.

       Donald  E.  Knuth  wrote  the  program.  It was published as part of the TeX for nroffware
       technical report, available from the TeX Users Group.  Howard Trickey, Pavel  Curtis,  and
       Richard Furuta originally ported it to Unix.
