afm2tfm - convert Adobe font metrics to TeX font metrics
PostScript fonts are (or should be) accompanied by font metric files such as Times-Roman.afm, which describes the characteristics of the
font called Times-Roman. To use such fonts with TeX, we need TFM files that contain similar information. This program does that conver-
sion. For more information, print out the dvips manual.
psfonts.map in the config directory used by dvips (update this).
../afm/Makefile in the dvips sources (look at this for examples).

An option to add letterspacing to the virtual font was rejected by Knuth because it would make the fi and fl ligatures break the normal

vptovf - convert virtual property lists to virtual font metrics
vptovf [-verbose] vpl_name[.vpl] [vfm_name[.vf] [tfm_name[.tfm]]]
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.
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).
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.

What is the point of this? Whenever I close my shell it appends to the history file without adding this. I have never seen it overwrite my history file.
# When the shell exits, append to the history file instead of overwriting it
