Pstotext extracts plain text from PostScript documents. It deals successfully
with a wide variety of encoding vectors, and it re-assembles words that have
been broken up for pair-kerning (it doesn't re-assemble words that have been
hyphenated, though). It also works (though a little less reliably) on PDF
