NAME

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



SYNOPSIS

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



DESCRIPTION

       ofm2opl translates a binary Omega Font Metrics file,  OFMNAME,  into  a
       human-readable property-list form.  The program writes to standard out-
       put (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).)



OPTIONS

       -charcode-format=TYPE
              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

       -verbose
              display progress reports

       -version
              output version information and exit

AUTHOR

       According to the WEB documentation:

              The  first TFtoPL 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 OFM2OPL.
