SYNOPSIS

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

DESCRIPTION

This manual page is not meant to be exhaustive. The complete documentation for this version of T\h’-0.1667m’\v’0.20v’E\v’-0.20v’\h’-0.125m’X 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) T\h’-0.1667m’\v’0.20v’E\v’-0.20v’\h’-0.125m’X font metric file. Thus, after editing the property list file, a TFM file can be generated for use with, for example, 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 banner and progress report are printed on stdout.
