.TH OVF2OVP 1 "14 April 2016" "Web2C @VERSION@"
.PP 
.SH "NAME" 
ovf2ovp \- convert virtual font file and associated font metrics to property-list format
.PP 
.SH "SYNOPSIS" 
.PP 
.B ovf2ovp
.RI [ options ]
.IR ovfname [ \fB.ovf\fP ]
.RI [ ofmname [ \fB.ofm\fP ]
.RI [ ovpfile [ \fB.ovp\fP ]]]
.PP 
.SH "DESCRIPTION" 
.PP 
\fBovf2ovp\fP translates a virtual font (OVF) file, \fIovfname\fP,
and its companion font metric (OFM) file, \fIofmname\fP, into a
human-readable property-list format\&.  The program writes to standard
output (by default) or to a file specified as \fIovpname\fP\&.
.PP 
The program also works with TeX VF and TFM files, producing TeX VPL
files\&.
.PP 
.SH "OPTIONS" 
.PP
(Same as \fBofm2opl\fP).
.IP
.IP "\fB-charcode-format=\fP\fItype\fP" 
output character codes according to \fItype\fP,
either `hex\&', `octal\&' or `ascii\&'\&.  Default is
`hex\&'\&; `ascii' says to use
ASCII for letters and digits, hex for all else\&.
.IP "\fB-char-format=\fP\fIstype\fP"
output character codes according to \fIstype\fP,
either `num\&' or `ascii\&'\&. Default is `num'; `ascii' as in
-charcode-format.  (These two redundant options both exist only for
historical compatibility.)
.IP "\fB-num-format=\fP\fIntype\fP"
output numbers according to \fIntype\fP,
either `hex' or `octal'; default is hex.
.IP "\fB-text-format=\fP\fIttype\fP"
output coding scheme and family according to \fIttype\fP,
either `mixed' or `upper' case; default is mixed.
.IP "\fB-help\fP" 
display a brief summary of syntax and options 
.IP "\fB-verbose\fP" 
display progress reports
.IP "\fB-version\fP" 
output version information and exit
.IP 
.PP 
.SH "FILES" 
.PP 
.IP "\fIovpfile\fP" 
Omega Virtual Property List file
.IP "\fIofmname\fP" 
Omega Font Metric file
.IP "\fIovfname\fP" 
Omega Virtual Font file

.SH "BUGS" 
.PP 
Send bug reports to <http://lists.tug.org/tex-k>
(mailing list); may also check if the same bug is present in
\fBvftovp\fP(1)\&.  General discussion of Omega (and Aleph) can take place
on the <http://lists.tug.org/omega> mailing list.

.SH "AUTHOR" 
.PP 
According to the WEB documentation:
.PP 
.RS 
\fBVFtoVP\fP is an extended version of the program \fBTFtoPL\fP,
which is part of the standard TeXware 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
\fBAMFtoXPL\fP\&.
.RE 
.PP
Thus, \fBovf2ovp\fP is based on the WEB source code for \fBvftovp\fP(1),
although nowadays it is a link to \fBomfonts\fP, implemented entirely in
C.
.PP 
The primary authors of Omega are John Plaice and Yannis Haralambous.
Omega (and Aleph) are now maintained as part of TeX Live.
