ps2ps, eps2eps - Ghostscript PostScript "distiller"
ps2ps [ options ] input.ps output.ps
eps2eps [ options ] input.eps output.eps
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 Post-
Script Level 2 or Level 3 constructs, but the -dLanguageLevel=1 option restricts the out-
put to Level 1.
eps2eps performs the equivalent optimization for Encapsulated PostScript (EPS) files.
Both accept any general Ghostscript command line options, and respectively options spe-
cific to the pswrite and epswrite devices.
Run "gs -h" to find the location of Ghostscript documentation on your system, from which
you can get more details.
The pswrite device used by both ps2ps and eps2eps produces much lower level output than is
desirable. Use with caution.
