OVF2OVP(27 April 2015)					OVF2OVP(27 April 2015)

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

SYNOPSIS
       ovf2ovp [OPTIONS] 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.

       The  primary  authors of	Omega are John Plaice <plaice@cse.unsw.edu.au>
       and Yannis Haralambous <yannis@fluxus-virus.com>.

       This manual page	was written by C.M. Connelly <cmc@debian.org>, for the
