Alscript, found at http://geoff.biop.ox.ac.uk/ and running on UNIX and DOS 
(maybe more) will do what you want and much more. The program is a pain to use 
(pardon Geoff) because as the name implies it is a scripting interpreter, but 
the result is well worth the sweat.
You need a postscript printer (or Ghoscript if you have an inkjet thing).
