The program also works with TeX VP files, producing VF and TFM files\&.
(\fBovp2ovf\fP is based on the WEB source code for \fBvptovf\fP(1)\&.)

According to the WEB documentation:
.PP 
.RS 
\fBVPtoVF\fP is an extended version of the program \fBPLtoTF\fP,
which is part of the standard TeXware library\&.  \fBOVP2OVF\fP is an
extended version of \fBVPtoVF\fP that allows much larger fonts\&.  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 \fBPLFONT\fP\&.
