How do I apply the kern2VOLT tool to create kern lookup?

kern2VOLT is part of MS VOLT distribution. It allows font designer easily convert existing kern table into file containing kerning data in VOLT lookup format. Once lookup file generated, it can be imported into VOLT project through "Import\Import Lookup" menu.

Command line for kern2VOLT is following:

kern2VOLT [-rtl] fontfile.ttf kernlookup.vtl

Fontfile.ttf should contain kern table and VOLT project sources. VOLT project is required because kern2VOLT needs to get glyph names from there. kernlookup.vtl is name of the output lookup file. -rtl is optional, you would use it to get correct data for right-to-left scripts.
