Re: ps2pk vs. gsftopk

    quality of rasterization with a standard printer PS interpreter /
    ghostscript / gsftopk / ps2pk .

gsftopk merely calls ghostscript; it doesn't do any rasterization itself.
So those two should be the same.

Both ghostscript and ps2pk were based on the Type 1 rasterizer IBM
donated to the X consortium. So modulo any improvements Peter or Piet
has made, output should be similar. I've never compared the programs'
output directly.

I suspect IBM has worked a lot on the code for their own use.
