       ovf2ovp - convert a virtual font file and its associated font metric file into property-list format

       ovf2ovp [ OPTION... ] OVFNAME[.ovf] [ [ OFMNAME[.ofm] ] [ OVPFILE[.ovp] ] ]

       ovf2ovp  translates a virtual font (OVF) file, OVFNAME, and its companion font metric (OFM) file, OFMNAME, into
       a human-readable property-list format.  The program writes to standard output (by default) or to a file  speci-
       fied as OVPNAME.

       The  program also works with TeX VF and TFM files, producing TeX VP files.  (ovf2ovp is based on the WEB source
       code for vftovp(1).)

              output character codes according to TYPE, which can be either  'hex'  or  'ascii'.   Default  is  'hex'.
              ascii specifes all ASCII letters and digits; hex gets you everything else.

       Draft Manual for the Omega System (omega-manual.dvi).

       Web page: <>;

       According to the WEB documentation:

              VFtoVP is an extended version of the program TFtoPL, which is part of the  standard  tex()ware  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.
