.TH OFM2OPL 1 "14 April 2016" "Web2C @VERSION@"
.PP 
.SH "NAME" 
ofm2opl \- convert Omega and TeX font-metric files to property-list files
.PP 
.SH "SYNOPSIS" 
.PP 
.B ofm2opl
.RI [ options ]
.IR ofmname [ \fB.ofm\fP ]
.RI [ oplfile [ \fB.opl\fP ]]
.PP 
.SH "DESCRIPTION" 
.PP 
\fBofm2opl\fP translates a binary Omega Font Metrics file,
\fIofmname\fP, into a human-readable property-list form\&.  The
program writes to standard output (by default) or to a file specified
as \fIoplfile\fP\&.
.PP 
The program also works with TeX TFM files, producing TeX PL files\&.
.PP 
.SH "OPTIONS" 
.PP 
(Same as \fBovf2ovp\fP).
.IP 
.IP "\fB-charcode-format=\fP\fItype\fP" 
output character codes according to \fItype\fP,
either `hex\&', `octal\&' or `ascii\&'\&.  Default is
`hex\&'\&; `ascii' says to use
ASCII for letters and digits, hex for all else\&.
.IP "\fB-char-format=\fP\fIstype\fP"
output character codes according to \fIstype\fP,
either `num\&' or `ascii\&'\&. Default is `num'; `ascii' as in
-charcode-format.  (These two redundant options both exist only for
historical compatibility.)
.IP "\fB-num-format=\fP\fIntype\fP"
output numbers according to \fIntype\fP,
either `hex' or `octal'; default is hex.
.IP "\fB-text-format=\fP\fIttype\fP"
output coding scheme and family according to \fIttype\fP,
either `mixed' or `upper' case; default is mixed.
.IP "\fB-help\fP" 
display a brief summary of syntax and options 
.IP "\fB-verbose\fP" 
display progress reports
.IP "\fB-version\fP" 
output version information and exit
.IP 
.PP 
.SH "FILES" 
.PP 
.IP "\fIOFMNAME\fP" 
an Omega Font Metric file
.IP "\fIOPLFILE\fP" 
an Omega Property List file
.PP 
.SH "BUGS" 
.PP 
Send bug reports to <http://lists.tug.org/tex-k>
(mailing list); may also check if the same bug is present in
\fBtftopl\fP(1)\&.  General discussion of Omega (and Aleph) can take place
on the <http://lists.tug.org/omega> mailing list.
.PP 
.SH "SEE ALSO" 
.PP 
\fBomega\fP(1), \fBaleph\fP(1), \fBopl2ofm\fP(1), \fBpltotf\fP(1),
\fBtftopl\fP(1)\&.
.PP 
.SH "AUTHOR" 
.PP 
According to the WEB documentation:
.PP 
.RS 
The first \fBTFtoPL\fP 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\&.
.PP 
Extensions for an enhanced ligature mechanism were added by D\&.E\&. Knuth
in 1989\&.
.PP 
Extensions to handle extended font metric files (``OFM\&'\&') were added
by John Plaice in December 1995 and January 1996, resulting in the new
program \fBOFM2OPL\fP\&.
.RE 
.PP
\fBofm2opl\fP is based on the WEB source code for \fBtftopl\fP(1),
although nowadays it is a link to \fBomfonts\fP, implemented entirely in
C.
.PP 
The primary authors of Omega are John Plaice and Yannis Haralambous.
Omega (and Aleph) are now maintained as part of TeX Live.
