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. Synopsis: 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/cmr10.pl' 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.
