 extract text from postscript

Does anyone know of a utility which will extract the text from a postscript
file? (and where to get it?)

This must be in the FAQ, but I'll answer anyway.
First thing to to note is that NO program will be able to do this
correctly 100% of the time. At best, around 85% of the text will
be extracted correctly, the rest will look like someone screwed
up the spacing.

Having said that, I think there's a thing out there called "ps2a".
Archie might help find it.
