The Ghostscript distribution contains several PS converters:

ps2ascii extract ASCII text from PS files
viewps2a utility for displaying the output of ps2ascii
ps2ai convert PS file into form compatible with Adobe Illustrator
ps2epsi convert PS file into EPSI form

I haven't tried any of these -- just got this from a file psfiles.txt
in the Aladdin Ghostscript distribution. A good place to look is:

Good luck.
