PLTOTF(1)		    General Commands Manual		     PLTOTF(1)

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

SYNOPSIS
       pltotf [-verbose] pl_file_name[.pl] [tfm_file_name[.tfm]]

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) 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).

       The pl_file_name	is extended with .pl if	it lacks  a  suffix.  No  path
       searching is done.

       If  no tfm_file_name is given, the basename of pl_file_name with	suffix
       .tfm is used; otherwise tfm_file_name is	extended with .tfm if it lacks
       a suffix.

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