ovf2ovp - convert a virtual font file and its associated font metric file into property-list format


ovf2ovp [ OPTION... ] OVFNAME[.ovf] [ [ OFMNAME[.ofm] ] [ OVPFILE[.ovp] ] ]


ovf2ovp translates a virtual font (OVF) file, OVFNAME, and its companion font metric (OFM) file, OFMNAME, into a human-readable property-list format. The program writes to standard output (by default) or to a file specified as OVPNAME.

The program also works with TeX VF and TFM files, producing TeX VP files. (ovf2ovp is based on the WEB source code for vftovp(1).)


output character codes according to TYPE, which can be either `hex' or `ascii'. Default is `hex'. ascii specifes all ASCII letters and digits; hex gets you everything else.

Draft Manual for the Omega System (omega-manual.dvi).

Web page: <>


According to the WEB documentation:

VFtoVP is an extended version of the program TFtoPL, which is part of the standard tex()ware 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 AMFtoXPL.

Toutes les opérations du langage en tant qu'instrument du raisonnement
peuvent se conduire dans un système de signes composé des éléments
suivants :
1) Des symboles littéraux tels que x, y, etc. représentant les choses en
tant qu'objets de nos conceptions.
2) Des signes d'opérations tels que +, -, ×, qui traduisent les
opérations de l'esprit par lesquelles les conceptions des choses sont
combinées ou séparées de manière à former de nouvelles conceptions
comprenant les mêmes éléments.
3) Le signe d'identité =.
Et ces symboles logiques voient leur usage soumis à des lois
déterminées, qui en partie s'accordent et en partie ne s'accordent pas
avec les lois et symboles correspondants dans la science de l'algèbre.
