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  de-
	      signed  a	 similar set of	conventions in 1984 while developing a
	      device driver for	ArborText, Inc.	 He wrote a  somewhat  similar
	      program called PLFONT.
