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 documentation 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 example, 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 banner and progress report are printed on stdout.
