The program also works with TeX TFM files, producing TeX PL files. (ofm2opl is based on the WEB source code for tftopl(1).)

8. AUTHOR ▲
According to the WEB documentation:
The first TFtoPL 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 OFM2OPL.
