This is the README file for dvitops, version 1.2. See the file INSTALL, for information on installation. dvitops translates dvi files output by TeX into PostScript. dvitops is not copyrighted; you can do with it exactly as you please. I would, however, ask that if you make improvements or modifications, you ask me before distributing them to others. Besides dvitops itself, this distribution contains three other programs: psfont, which is a very simple-minded filter to handle font-downlaoding; pfbtops, which unpacks PostScript fonts from the format in which they are supplied by Adobe for the IBM PC; aftopl, which converts afm files to pl files. There is also a style file (ps.sty) and some PostScript code which sets up LaTeX to use PostScript. Please report any bugs you find. If you report a bug, please say what version of dvitops you are using.

dvitops – A DVI driver for PostScript output
This driver, though good in its day, was never updated to use virtual fonts, and has therefore lost out to dvips in terms of market share.
