NAME
ps2ps, eps2eps - Ghostscript PostScript "distiller" SYNOPSIS
ps2ps [ options ] input.ps output.ps eps2eps [ options ] input.eps output.eps DESCRIPTION
ps2ps uses gs(1) to convert PostScript(tm) file "input.ps" to simpler, normalized and (usually) faster PostScript in "output.ps". Normally the output is allowed to use PostScript Level 2 or Level 3 constructs, but the -dLanguageLevel=1 option restricts the output to Level 1. eps2eps performs the equivalent optimization for Encapsulated PostScript (EPS) files. Both accept any general Ghostscript command line options, and respectively options specific to the pswrite and epswrite devices. FILES
Run "gs -h" to find the location of Ghostscript documentation on your system, from which you can get more details. BUGS
The pswrite device used by both ps2ps and eps2eps produces much lower level output than is desirable. Use with caution. SEE ALSO

I am writing a text for LaTeX compile. I think that my grace figs need to be .ps or .eps files for incorporation. Can one just do a 'save as X.eps' for this, or is another method required? Thanks- Marshall (6 Replies)
