VPTOVF(1)		    General Commands Manual		     VPTOVF(1)

NAME
       vptovf -	convert	virtual	property lists to virtual font metrics

SYNOPSIS
       vptovf [-verbose] vpl_name[.vpl]	[vfm_name[.vf] [tfm_name[.tfm]]]

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  vptovf program translates a	(human-oriented) property list file to
       a pair of (program-oriented) files in the VF  (virtual  font)  and  TFM
       (TeX  font metric) formats. Thus, a virtual font	file can be edited and
       its exact contents can be displayed mnemonically.  New  virtual	fonts,
       which  map characters as	seen by	TeX into an arbitrary sequence of low-
       level typesetting operations, can also be created in this way.

       All three filenames, vpl_name, vf_name, and tfm_name, are extended with
       the appropriate suffix, if they lack one.

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

SEE ALSO
       pltotf(1), tftopl(1), vftovp(1).

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