According to the WEB documentation:
VPtoVF is an extended version of the program PLtoTF, which is
part of the standard TeXware library. OVP2OVF is an extended
version of VPtoVF 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 PLFONT.
