AUTHOR

       According to the WEB documentation:

              VPtoVF is an extended version of the program  PLtoTF,  which  is
              part  of  the  standard TeXware library.  OVP2OVF is an extended
              version of VPtoVF that allows much larger fonts.  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 PLFONT.
