       ovp2ovf - convert a virtual property-list file into a virtual font file and its associated font metric file

       ovp2ovf [ OPTION... ] OVPFILE[.ovp] [ [ OVFFILE[.ovf] ] [ OFMFILE[.ofm] ] ]

       ovp2ovf  translates a human-readable virtual property list (OVP) file, OVPFILE, into a virtual font (OVF) file,
       OVFFILE and its companion font metric (OFM) file, OFMFILE.

       The program also works with TeX VP files, producing VF and TFM files.  (ovp2ovf is based on the WEB source code
       for vptovf(1).)

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

       Web page: <>;

       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  develop-
              ing a device driver for ArborText, Inc.  He wrote a somewhat similar program called PLFONT.
