I don’t run across pure Postscript files too often any more. All the same, things like
ps2pdf are useful.
Both are part of the ghostscript package, which you might already have installed as a dependency to something else. It seems to get around.
I don’t know if there’s much I can add that isn’t better shown in the images. On the one hand you can convert to straight text, and the other, make the leap to PDFs … and from there, there’s lots of places to go.
I will say
ps2ascii‘s product seems to be a bit cluttered, so it might need a little touching up here and there. I hold no grudge over that though.
And I should also note that
ps2pdf has a few variations, and on my Arch system they show up as
ps2pdfwr. If you need a certain degree of compatibility — or lack thereof, if you use
ps2pfdwr alone — you have the options.
Conversion tools, conversion tools, so many more conversion tools. … 😐
