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-
       script

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) product: 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 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
