The source of the documentation is embedded as POD data
in the Perl script dosepsbin.pl. The documentation is
available in various formats:
* Manual page:    dosepsbin.man
* PDF file:       dosepsbin.pdf
* HTML file:      dosepsbin.html
* Text file:      dosepsbin.txt
And program option --man displays the documentation on

  It should install the script and manual page.
  The other documentation files can be installed manually.

  * dosepsbin.pl: Install the file as `dosepsbin' in a directory
    that is listed in environment variable `PATH', e.g.
  * dosepsbin.man: Install the manual page as `dosepsbin.1'
    in the appropriate directory, e.g.:
  * dosepsbin.pdf, dosepsbin.html, dosepsbin.html, README:

The files clean-case.pl and version.pl are just helper scripts for
generating the documentation and are provided for sake of completeness.
They are usually not needed, because the documentation files are
already generated and provided in the distribution.
