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

SYNOPSIS
       ofm2opl [OPTIONS] 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

FILES
       OFMNAME
	      an Omega Font Metric file

       OPLFILE
	      an Omega Property	List file

BUGS
       None known, but report any found	to <omega@ens.fr> (mailing list).  You
       may also	want to	check to see if	the same bug is	present	in pltotf(1).

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.

       The primary authors of Omega are	John  Plaice  <plaice@cse.unsw.edu.au>
       and Yannis Haralambous <yannis@fluxus-virus.com>.

       This manual page	was written by C.M. Connelly <cmc@debian.org>, for the
