Description         top

       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.
