VFTOVP(1)		    General Commands Manual		     VFTOVP(1)

NAME
       vftovp  -  convert  virtual  font  (vf) files to	virtual	property lists
       (vpl)

SYNOPSIS
       vftovp [OPTIONS]	vf_name[.vf] [tfm_name[.tfm] [vpl_name[.vpl]]]

DESCRIPTION
       This manual page	is not meant to	be exhaustive.	The complete  documen-
       tation  for this	version	of TeX can be found in the info	file or	manual
       Web2C: A	TeX implementation.

       The vftovp program translates a (program-oriented)  virtual  font  file
       and  its	 accompanying TeX font metric file to a	(human-oriented) prop-
       erty list file.	Thus, the virtual font can be edited,  and  its	 exact
       contents	 can  be  displayed mnemonically.  It also serves as a VF-file
       validating program; if no error messages	are given, the input files are
       correct.

       The filenames are extended with the appropriate extension if necessary.

OPTIONS
       -charcode-format=format
	      The  argument format specifies how character codes are output in
	      the VPL file.  By	default, only letters and  digits  are	output
	      using the	C integer code (i.e., in ASCII); the others are	output
	      in octal.	 (Unless the font's coding scheme starts with TeX math
	      sy  or TeX math ex, when all are output in octal.)  If format is
	      ascii, all character codes that correspond  to  graphic  charac-
	      ters,  besides  the  left	 and  right parentheses, are output in
	      ASCII.  On the other hand, if format  is	octal,	all  character
	      codes are	output in octal.

       -verbose
	      Without  this option, vftovp operates silently.  With it,	a ban-
	      ner and progress report are printed on stdout.

ENVIRONMENT
       vftovp looks for	vf_name	using the environment  variable	 VFFONTS.   If
       that is not set,	it uses	the variable TEXFONTS.	If that	is not set, it
       uses the	system default.

       See tex(1) for the details of the searching.

AUTHORS
       Donald E. Knuth wrote the program, based	in part	on an  idea  of	 David
       Fuchs, starting with the	code for tftopl(1).  Karl Berry	adapted	it for
       compilation with	web2c.
