NAME
       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  corre-
       sponding  to  the  BoundingBox.	 This  means that when Ghostscript renders it, the result
       needs no cropping, 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 spec-
	      ified, 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  accord-
	      ing   to	 the  values  of  openin_any  and  openout_any	(see  the  Web2c  manual,
	      http://tug.org/web2c).

       --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 test.ps >testcorr.ps

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 tex-k@tug.org.  When reporting bugs, please
       include an input file and the command line options specified, so the problem can be repro-
       duced.
