       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).)


              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

              display progress reports

              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.
