txtbdf2ps is a small, self-contained Perl script that converts ASCII text files into Postscript using a given bitmap (BDF) font. (The character bitmaps are embedded into the PS file as a Type 3 font.) The script can be used to print texts in international character sets or for proofreading BDF fonts. Features include justified paragraphs, adjustable margins, and a slim & simple resulting PS.
