AUTHOR

According to the WEB documentation:

The first PLtoTF program was designed by Leo Guibas in the summer 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, resulting 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>.
