This directory contains psposter, an easy-to-use program for producing
simple colored posters in PostScript.

	    *** This program is in the PUBLIC DOMAIN. ***

The master copy of psposter can be found on the Internet archive in compressed UNIX tar, zip, and zoo
formats.  It may be automatically mirrored from there to other
Internet sites.

If you don't have lptops installed (available in the same archive as
psposter), you can create an empty file, and put it in a
directory pointed to by the AFMPATH environment variable.  lptops is
very handy, and its installation will supply you with some additional
fonts for psposter.

The files in the psposter distribution consist of:
