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