       ovp2ovf - convert a virtual property-list file into a virtual font file and its associated
       font metric file


       ovp2ovf [ OPTION... ] OVPFILE[.ovp] [ [ OVFFILE[.ovf] ] [ OFMFILE[.ofm] ] ]


       ovp2ovf translates a human-readable virtual property list  (OVP)  file,  OVPFILE,  into  a
       virtual font (OVF) file, OVFFILE and its companion font metric (OFM) file, OFMFILE.

       The  program  also works with TeX VP files, producing VF and TFM files.  (ovp2ovf is based
       on the WEB source code for vptovf(1).)

       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.
