AUTHOR

       According to the WEB documentation:

              The first PLtoTF 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
              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, result-
              ing in the new program OPL2OFM.
