VPL Utilities Angus Duggan 25th September 1993
This directory contains the first in a suite of tools to manipulate TeX
property list and virtual property list files. More tools may be added as the
need arises :-) These tools are copyright (C) Angus Duggan 1993, but may be
re-distributed freely and used for any purpose (including distribution as part
of a for-profit product) provided that:
1) The original attribution of the programs is clearly displayed in the product
and/or documentation, even if the programs are modified and/or renamed as
part of the product.
2) The original source code of the programs is provided free of charge (except
for reasonable distribution costs). For a definition of reasonable
distribution costs, see the Gnu General Public License or Larry Wall's

3) These programs are provided "as-is". No warranty or guarantee of their
fitness for any particular task is provided. Use of these programs is
completely at your own risk.
The package contains:
makevpl Merges PL and VPL files, creating a VPL file.
spacevpl Alters the spacing in a PL or VPL file.
paths.pl Perl package for expanding and searching paths
parsepl.pl Perl package for parsing PL and VPL files
parseenc.pl Perl package for parsing encoding vectors
encodings/* Encoding vectors for various TeX and other encodings.
Edit the PERL, PERLLIBDIR, SCRIPTDIR, MANDIR, MANEXT and ENCODINGDIR
macros in the Makefile, and "make install".
None that I know of :-)
