7. 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.

The primary authors of Omega are John Plaice < > and Yannis Haralambous < >.
