pfbtops — translate a PostScript font in .pfb format to ASCII


pfbtops [ -v ] [ pfb_file ]


pfbtops translates a PostScript font in .pfb format to ASCII, splitting overlong lines in text packets into smaller chunks. If pfb_file is omitted the pfb file will be read from the standard input. The ASCII format PostScript font will be written on the standard output. PostScript fonts for MS-DOS are normally supplied in .pfb format.

The resulting ASCII format PostScript font can be used with groff. It must first be listed in /usr/share/groff/1.22.3/font/devps/download and /usr/share/groff/1.22.3/font/devpdf/download.
