Synopsis

pl [-input input_binary_file | -output output_binary_file]

Translates XML property list files into the more compact and readable key/value NeXT format. Also translates between this and a serialized binary format, in either direction. XML is read from standard input, NeXT-format data is read from standard input and written to standard output, and serialized binary data is read from and written to files specified with arguments.

This command has been deprecated. You should use plutil instead.
