       vptovf - convert virtual property lists to virtual font metrics

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

       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.

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

       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.
