A Unix program that extracts ASCII text from PostScript and PDF (Acrobat) files. pstotext uses GhostScript, but does a more careful job with kerned characters and nonstandard font encodings than Ghostscript's ps2ascii utility.
Pstotext is no longer held on CTAN; documentation and downloads are available from its home page.
The authors are Andrew Birrell and Paul McJones.
