human-readable property-list form. The program writes to standard out-
put (by default) or to a file specified as oplfile.
The program also works with TeX TFM files, producing TeX PL files.
(Same as ovf2ovp).

According to the WEB documentation:
The first TFtoPL program was designed by Leo Guibas in the sum-
mer of 1978. Contributions by Frank Liang, Doug Wyatt, and Lyle
Ramshaw also had a significant effect on the evolution of the
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, result-
ing in the new program OFM2OPL.
ofm2opl is based on the WEB source code for tftopl(1), although nowa-
days it is a link to omfonts, implemented entirely in C.
The primary authors of Omega are John Plaice and Yannis Haralambous.
Omega (and Aleph) are now maintained as part of TeX Live.
