ovf2ovp - convert a virtual font file and its associated font metric file into property- list format
ovf2ovp [ OPTION... ] OVFNAME[.ovf] [ [ OFMNAME[.ofm] ] [ OVPFILE[.ovp] ] ]
ovf2ovp translates a virtual font (OVF) file, OVFNAME, and its companion 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).)
-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

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. The primary authors of Omega are John Plaice <firstname.lastname@example.org> and Yannis Haralambous <email@example.com>.
