Tools for rendering text in various formats.



All the tools recognizing “overprinting”, for instance as found in man(1) output, to represent bold and underline. The latter can optionally be rendered in italics.

Tabs are converted to spaces.

For Postscript, PDF and PNG output the font and size can be selected, as can page borders, and titles and page numbers can be added.
