pfbtops - translate Printer Font Binary files to PostScript ASCII
pfbtops [pfb-file] pfbtops --help pfbtops -v pfbtops --version
pfbtops translates a PostScript font in Printer Font Binary (PFB) format to Printer Font ASCII (PFA) format, splitting overlong lines in text packets into smaller chunks. If pfb-file is omitted, the PFB file will be read from the standard input stream. The PFA font will be written on the standard output stream. PostScript fonts for MS-DOS were historically supplied in PFB format. The resulting PFA font can be used with groff(1) if it is first listed in /usr/local/share/groff/1.23.0/font/devps/download and /usr/local/share/groff/1.23.0/font/devpdf/download. The --help option displays a usage message, while -v and --version show version information; all exit afterward.
