epstopdf, repstopdf - convert an EPS file to PDF SYNOPSIS
epstopdf [options] [epsfile] DESCRIPTION
epstopdf transforms the Encapsulated PostScript file epsfile (or standard input) so that it is guaranteed to start at the 0,0 coordinate, and it sets a page size exactly corresponding to the BoundingBox. This means that when Ghostscript renders it, the result needs no crop- ping, and the PDF MediaBox is correct. By default, the result is piped to Ghostscript and a PDF version written. If the bounding box is not right, of course, there are problems. OPTIONS
--outfile=file write result to file. If this option is not given, and --nogs or --filter is specified, write to standard output; otherwise, the default is to construct the output file name by replacing any extension in the input file with .pdf. --[no]compress use compression (default: on). --[no]debug write debugging info (default: off). --[no]embed embed fonts (default: on). --[no]exact scan ExactBoundingBox (default: off). --[no]filter read standard input and (unless --outfile is given) write standard output(default: off). --[no]gs run Ghostscript (default: on). With --nogs, output (to standard output by default) the PostScript that would normally be converted; that is, the input PostScript as modified by epstopdf. --[no]hires scan HiresBoundingBox (default: off). --gscmd=val pipe output to val (default: [gswin32c on Windows, else gs]) --res=dpi set image resolution (default: [use gs default]) --autorotate=val set AutoRotatePages (default: None); recognized val choices: None, All, PageByPage. For EPS files, PageByPage is equivalent to All. --restricted=val turn on restricted mode (default: [on for repstopdf, else off]); this forbids the use of --gscmd and imposes restrictions on the input and output file names according to the values of openin_any and openout_any (see the Web2c manual, --help display help message and exit --version display version information and exit EXAMPLES
Examples which produce "test.pdf": epstopdf test.eps produce postscript | epstopdf --filter >test.pdf produce postscript | epstopdf -f -d -o=test.pdf Example: look for HiresBoundingBox and produce corrected PostScript: epstopdf -d --nogs --hires > BUGS
The case of "%%BoundingBox: (atend)" when input is not seekable (e.g., from a pipe) is not supported. Report bugs in the program or this man page to When reporting bugs, please include an input file and the command line options specified, so the problem can be reproduced. SEE ALSO

ps2pdf - Convert PostScript to PDF using ghostscript ps2pdf12 - Convert PostScript to PDF 1.2 (Acrobat 3-and-later compatible) using ghostscript ps2pdf13 - Convert PostScript to PDF 1.3 (Acrobat 4-and-later compatible) using ghostscript SYNOPSIS
ps2pdf [options...] {input.[e]ps|-} [output.pdf|-] ps2pdf12 [options...] {input.[e]ps|-} [output.pdf|-] ps2pdf13 [options...] {input.[e]ps|-} [output.pdf|-] DESCRIPTION
The ps2pdf scripts are work-alikes for nearly all the functionality (but not the user interface) of Adobe's Acrobat(TM) Distiller(TM) prod- uct: they convert PostScript files to Portable Document Format (PDF) files. If the output filename is not specified, the output is placed is a file of the same name with a '.pdf' extension. Either the input filename or the output filename can be '-' to request reading from stdin or writing to stdout, respectively, when used as a filter. The three scripts differ as follows: - ps2pdf12 will always produce PDF 1.2 output (Acrobat 3-and-later compatible). - ps2pdf13 will always produce PDF 1.3 output (Acrobat 4-and-later compatible). - ps2pdf per se currently produces PDF 1.4 output. However, this may change in the future. If you care about the compatibility level of the output, use ps2pdf12 or ps2pdf13, or use the -dCompatibility=1.x switch in the command line. There are some limitations in ps2pdf's conversion. See the HTML documentation for more information. A large number of Adobe Distiller(TM) parameters which can be used to control the conversion are also documented there, including instructions for generating PDF/X and PDF/A documents. EXAMPLES
Converting a to figure.pdf: ps2pdf A conversion with more specifics: ps2pdf -dPDFSETTINGS=/prepress proof.pdf Converting as part of a pipe: -t ps | ps2pdf -dCompatibility=1.3 - - | lpr SEE ALSO
