10.9 VPtoVF: Virtual property lists to virtual font

VPtoVF translates a virtual property list file (as output by VFtoVP, for
example) to virtual font (VF, *note Virtual fonts: (dvips)Virtual
fonts.) and TeX font metric (TFM, *note Metric files: (dvips)Metric
files.) files.  It's much easier for both programs and humans to create
the (plain text) property list files and let VPtoVF take care of
creating the binary VF and TFM equivalents than to output them
directly.  Synopsis:

     vptovf [OPTION]... VPLFILE[.vpl] [VFFILE[.vf] [TFMFILE[.tfm]]]

   If VFFILE (extended with `.vf' if necessary) is not specified, the
VF output is written to the basename of `VPLFILE.vf'; similarly for
TFMFILE.  For example, `vptovf /wherever/ptmr.vpl' creates `./ptmr.vf'
and `./ptmr.tfm'.

   The only options are `-verbose', `-help', and `-version' (*note
Common options::).
