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.
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).
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.
