       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 ver-
       sion 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 vir-
       tual 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.

       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.
