 TIF2EPS is a PostScript program for the conversion of TIFF files (ver. 6.0)
 to EPS ones. Compression (LZW, CCITT Fax, RLE, Flate, DCT) and ASCII85
 encoding is available. The package may be used for generating colour-
 separated EPSes, `EPS thumbnails,' and, moreover, little header EPSes,
 containing only a pointer to a source TIFF file. Employing Ghostscript
 guarantees portability and efficient processing.

 facilitates installation of Adobe Type 1 fonts for (plain)
 TeX; an alternative for afm2tfm; starting from version 1.04,

 implicit kerning mechanism); currently, the scripts are available
 for DOS (but adaptable for U*X).
