epstopdf – Convert EPS to PDF using Ghostscript

Ep­stopdf is a Perl script that con­verts an EPS file to an ‘en­cap­su­lated’ PDF file (a sin­gle page file whose me­dia box is the same as the orig­i­nal EPS’s bound­ing box). The re­sult­ing file suit­able for in­clu­sion by pdf as an im­age. The script is adapted to run both on Win­dows and on Unix-alike sys­tems.

The script makes use of Ghostscript for the ac­tual con­ver­sion to PDF. It as­sumes Ghostscript ver­sion 6.51 or later, and (by de­fault) sup­presses its au­to­matic ro­ta­tion of pages where most of the text is not hor­i­zon­tal.

users may make use of the ep­stopdf pack­age, which will run the ep­stopdf script “on the fly”, thus giv­ing the il­lu­sion that pdf is ac­cept­ing EPS graphic files.
