Official Mirror:
bg5ps is a program for converting normally unreadable PostScript files which are encoded in Big5 or GB to be readable using TrueType fonts. Its command line options are a bit harsh to get working but there are detailed instructions on how to do so. The default system wide encoding is Big5. This can be overridden either by using the GB configuration file in the documents directory, which will then prevail to be the system wide policy for bg5ps or alternatively you may want to use a custom-defined one in your home directory, which will be on a per-user basis.
