Translator TXT + BDF to PS
This is a perl script that can generate compact, DSC-compliant Postscript out of a plain text file and a BDF font. The output can be previewed using Ghostscript under most platforms, or with the Windows shareware program “ROPS”, or printed on Postscript printers, or converted to PDF using “ps2pdf”.
The motivation for creating this script was to be able to print texts in international character sets. Since it’s much easier to create or edit bitmap BDF/PCF fonts than outline fonts, this script allows to print texts using your own fonts.
