       ofm2opl - convert Omega and TeX font-metric files to property-list files

       ofm2opl [ OPTION... ] OFMNAME[.ofm] [ OPLFILE[.opl] ]

       ofm2opl  translates  a  binary Omega Font Metrics file, OFMNAME, into a human-readable property-list form.  The
       program writes to standard output (by default) or to a file specified as OPLFILE.

       The program also works with TeX TFM files, producing TeX PL files.  (ofm2opl is based on the  WEB  source  code
       for tftopl(1).)

              output  character  codes  according  to  TYPE,  which can be either 'hex' or 'ascii'.  Default is 'hex'.
              ascii specifes all ASCII letters and digits; hex gets you everything else.

       According to the WEB documentation:

              The  first  TFtoPL  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 OFM2OPL.

       The primary authors of Omega are John Plaice <> and  Yannis  Haralambous  <yannis@fluxus->.
