       ps2pdf  [options...] (input.[e]ps|-) [output.pdf|-]
       ps2pdf12  [options...] (input.[e]ps|-) [output.pdf|-]
       ps2pdf13  [options...] (input.[e]ps|-) [output.pdf|-]

       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.

       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 1.2 output (Acrobat 3-and-later compatible).
	      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
