10.7 PLtoTF: Property list to TeX font metric conversion

PLtoTF translates a property list file (as output by TFtoPL, for
example) to TeX font metric (TFM, *note Metric files: (dvips)Metric
files.)  format.  It's much easier for both programs and humans to
create the (plain text) property list files and let PLtoTF take care of
creating the binary TFM equivalent than to output TFM files directly.

     pltotf [OPTION]... PLFILE[.pl] [TFMFILE[.tfm]]

   If TFMFILE (extended with `.tfm' if necessary) is not specified, the
TFM file is written to the basename of `PLFILE.tfm', e.g., `pltotf
/wherever/' creates `./cmr10.tfm'.  (Since TFM files are
binary, writing to standard output by default is undesirable.)

   The only options are `-verbose', `-help', and `-version' (*note
Common options::).

   For an example of property list format, see the previous section.
