Property lists in GNUstep are hierarchical lists of values or attribute-value pairs.
Programmatically they are represented by instances of the NSString, NSData, NSArray, or
NSDictionary (most common) class (which may contain other instances of such classes).
These instances can be serialized as binary objects to form a persistent representation.
In addition, there are two alternative human-readable representations. The first,
utilized in NeXTstep and OpenStep, utilizes a text format with equals signs expressing
attribute-value bindings and set braces expressing hierarchical organization. The second,
often (uninformatively) referred to as "plist" format, is in XML and is used by Mac OS X.
The tools described here are utilities for manipulating the various persistent property
list representations as files.

pldes filename(s)
Converts a binary serialised property list (class instance) to a text representation.

plget key
Reads a text representation of a dictionary in property list format as standard input,
extracts the string value held in that dictionary with the specified key, and writes
the result to standard output. Multiple keys may be used to extract values from
nested dictionaries.

plser filename(s)
Converts a text representation of a property list to a binary serialized

plmerge [ destination-file ] [ input-file(s) ]
Merges text property lists into a single property list

plparse filename(s)
Checks that each file contains a valid text representation of a property list.

pl2link input-file [ destination-file ]
Produces a desktop link file for KDE and Gnome for the given text representation of a
property list.

plio -input [ input-file ]
Takes the serialized plist represented by input-file and outputs it to standard

plio -output [ destination-file ]
Takes a plist from standard input and serializes it into destination-file.
