NAME

       ovf2ovp  -  convert  a virtual font file and its associated font metric
       file into property-list format



SYNOPSIS

       ovf2ovp [ OPTION... ] OVFNAME[.ovf] [ [ OFMNAME[.ofm] ] [ OVPFILE[.ovp]
       ] ]



DESCRIPTION

       ovf2ovp  translates a virtual font (OVF) file, OVFNAME, and its compan-
       ion font metric (OFM) file, OFMNAME, into  a  human-readable  property-
       list  format.  The program writes to standard output (by default) or to
       a file specified as OVPNAME.

       The program also works with TeX VF and  TFM  files,  producing  TeX  VP
       files.  (ovf2ovp is based on the WEB source code for vftovp(1).)



OPTIONS

       -charcode-format=TYPE
              output  character  codes  according to TYPE, which can be either
              ‘hex’ or ‘ascii’.  Default is ‘hex’.  ascii specifes  all  ASCII
              letters and digits; hex gets you everything else.


       -help  display a brief summary of syntax and options

       -verbose
              display progress reports

       -version
              output version information and exit

AUTHOR

       According to the WEB documentation:

              VFtoVP  is  an  extended version of the program TFtoPL, which is
              part of the standard tex()ware library.  The idea of  a  virtual
              font  was  inspired by the work of David R. Fuchs who designed a
              similar set of conventions in 1984  while  developing  a  device
              driver  for ArborText, Inc.  He wrote a somewhat similar program
              called AMFtoXPL.
