AUTHOR
       According to the	WEB documentation:

	      The first	PLtoTF 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 OPL2OFM.

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