OVF2OVP(1)                  General Commands Manual                 OVF2OVP(1)

NAME
       ovf2ovp  -  convert  virtual  font  file and associated font metrics to
       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 VPL
       files.

OPTIONS
       (Same as ofm2opl).

       -charcode-format=type
              output character codes according to type, either `hex',  `octal'
              or  `ascii'.   Default  is  `hex'; `ascii' says to use ASCII for
              letters and digits, hex for all else.

       -char-format=stype
              output character codes  according  to  stype,  either  `num'  or
              `ascii'.  Default  is  `num';  `ascii'  as  in -charcode-format.
              (These two redundant options both exist only for historical com-
              patibility.)

       -num-format=ntype
              output  numbers  according  to  ntype,  either `hex' or `octal';
              default is hex.

       -text-format=ttype
              output coding scheme  and  family  according  to  ttype,  either
              `mixed' or `upper' case; default is mixed.

AUTHOR
       According to the WEB documentation:

              VFtoVP  is  an  extended version of the program TFtoPL, which is
              part of the standard TeXware 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.

       Thus, ovf2ovp is based on the WEB source code for  vftovp(1),  although
       nowadays it is a link to omfonts, implemented entirely in C.

       The  primary  authors  of Omega are John Plaice and Yannis Haralambous.
       Omega (and Aleph) are now maintained as part of TeX Live.
