NAME

       vptovf - convert virtual property lists to virtual font metrics

SYNOPSIS

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

DESCRIPTION

       This  manual  page  is  not  meant  to  be  exhaustive.   The  complete
       documentation 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.

OPTIONS

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

SEE ALSO

       pltotf(1), tftopl(1), vftovp(1).

AUTHORS

       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.
