Karl Berry sub­mit­ted an up­date to the ep­stopdf pack­age. Ver­sion num­ber: 2.26 2017-01-07 Li­cense type: other-free Sum­mary de­scrip­tion: Con­vert EPS to PDF us­ing Ghostscript An­nounce­ment text:
This re­lease of ep­stopdf has one new fea­ture, by user re­quest: ep­stopdf in­file.eps out­file.pdf cre­ates the out­put in the in­di­cated file. An out­put file spec­i­fied this way must end in .pdf (case-in­sen­si­tive), to avoid ty­pos. For ar­bi­trary out­put names, con­tinue to use --out­file (-o).
This pack­age is lo­cated at http://mir­ror.ctan.org/sup­port/ep­stopdf More in­for­ma­tion is at http://www.ctan.org/pkg/ep­stopdf

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.
