       vftovp  -  convert  virtual  font  (vf) files to virtual property lists


       vftovp [OPTIONS] vf_name[.vf] [tfm_name[.tfm] [vpl_name[.vpl]]]


       This manual page is not meant to be exhaustive.  The complete  documen-
       tation  for this version of TeX can be found in the info file or manual
       Web2C: A TeX implementation.

       The vftovp program translates a (program-oriented)  virtual  font  file
       and  its  accompanying TeX font metric file to a (human-oriented) prop-
       erty list file.  Thus, the virtual font can be edited,  and  its  exact
       contents  can  be  displayed mnemonically.  It also serves as a VF-file
       validating program; if no error messages are given, the input files are

       The filenames are extended with the appropriate extension if necessary.


              The argument format specifies how character codes are output  in
              the  VPL  file.   By default, only letters and digits are output
              using the C integer code (i.e., in ASCII); the others are output
              in octal.  (Unless the font's coding scheme starts with TeX math
              sy or TeX math ex, when all are output in octal.)  If format  is
              ascii,  all  character  codes that correspond to graphic charac-
              ters, besides the left and  right  parentheses,  are  output  in
              ASCII.   On  the  other  hand, if format is octal, all character
              codes are output in octal.

              Without this option, vftovp operates silently.  With it, a  ban-
              ner and progress report are printed on stdout.


       vftovp  looks  for  vf_name using the environment variable VFFONTS.  If
       that is not set, it uses the variable TEXFONTS.  If that is not set, it
       uses the system default.

       See tex(1) for the details of the searching.

       Donald  E.  Knuth  wrote the program, based in part on an idea of David
       Fuchs, starting with the code for tftopl(1).  Karl Berry adapted it for
       compilation with web2c.
