also, as someone on the list did me, the output was incomplete !

first of, forgot to say that DWB is missing refer, so I use the GNU one.
after some investigations, I found that DWB pic eat a great part
of the initial document. the use of GNU pic -n solve the problem.
refer may be used w/ or w/o the -e option, I prefer w/o.

the final commands are :

export DWBHOME=/opt/dwb

ln -s CW $DWBHOME/lib/font/devpost/PO

dos2unix < post.tm  |
refer | pic -n |
/opt/dwb/bin/troff -ms |
/opt/dwb/bin/dpost |
tee post.ps | ps2pdf - post.pdf

using DWB, the AT&T Bell Labs logo looks perfect ;^)
