PLTOTF(1)                                               PLTOTF(1)

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  com-
       plete  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 prop-
       erty  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 com-
       plete; 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  std-
       out.
