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 complete 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 property 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 complete; 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
       stdout.
