Description         top

       pfbtops translates a PostScript Type 1 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.  Use of a PostScript Type 1 font with groff
       requires conversion of its metrics (AFM file) to a groff font
       description file; see afmtodit(1).

       The --help option displays a usage message, while -v and
       --version show version information; all exit afterward.
