NAME
       pfbtops - translate a PostScript font in .pfb format to ASCII

SYNOPSIS
       pfbtops [ -v ] [ pfb_file ]

DESCRIPTION
       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.   Post-
       Script 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.
