NAME

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


SYNOPSIS

       pltotf [ -verbose ] pl_file_name tfm_file_name


DESCRIPTION

       This  manual page is not meant to be exhaustive.  The complete documen-
       tation 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 exam-
       ple, 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.


OPTIONS

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