NAME
       ps2pdf - Convert PostScript to PDF using ghostscript
       ps2pdf12  -  Convert  PostScript  to PDF 1.2 (Acrobat 3-and-later compatible) using ghost-
       script
       ps2pdf13 - Convert PostScript to PDF 1.3  (Acrobat 4-and-later  compatible)  using  ghost-

       ps2pdf14  -  Convert  PostScript  to PDF 1.4 (Acrobat 5-and-later compatible) using ghost-
       script

SYNOPSIS
       ps2pdf  [options...] {input.[e]ps|-} [output.pdf|-]
       ps2pdf12  [options...] {input.[e]ps|-} [output.pdf|-]
       ps2pdf13  [options...] {input.[e]ps|-} [output.pdf|-]
       ps2pdf14  [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) product: they convert PostScript files to
       Portable Document Format (PDF) files.

       If the output filename is not specified, the output is placed in a file of the  same  name
       with a '.pdf' extension in the current working directory. Either the input filename or the
       output filename can be '-' to request reading from stdin or  writing  to  stdout,  respec-
       tively, 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).

       -      ps2pdf14 will always produce PDF 1.4 output (Acrobat 5-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,
	      ps2pdf13 or ps2pdf14, 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.

OPTIONS
       The ps2pdf scripts use the same options as gs(1).

EXAMPLES
       Converting a figure.ps to figure.pdf:

	      ps2pdf figure.ps

       A conversion with more specifics:

	      ps2pdf -dPDFSETTINGS=/prepress figure.ps proof.pdf

       Converting as part of a pipe:

	      make_report.pl -t ps | ps2pdf -dCompatibility=1.3 - - | lpr
