NAME

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

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS

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

DESCRIPTION

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 specified 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).)

OPTIONS

-charcode-format=TYPE 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.
-help display a brief summary of syntax and options
-verbose display progress reports
-version output version information and exit

FILES

OVPFILE Omega Virtual Property List file
OFMNAME Omega Font Metric file
OVFNAME Omega Virtual Font file

AUTHOR

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.
