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

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

       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

       The filenames are extended with the appropriate extension if necessary.

              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.

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

       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.

       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.
