       The program also works with TeX PL files, producing TeX TFM files.  (opl2ofm is based on the  WEB  source  code
       for pltotf(1).)

AUTHOR
       According to the WEB documentation:

              The first PLtoTF 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 OPL2OFM.
