CTAN Update: a2ping
* Lots of new features (introduced in 2007-03-07, but it somehow never made it to CTAN) * Bugfixes to make it work with Ghostscript 8.22.
The package’s Catalogue entry can be viewed at https://ctan.org/pkg/a2ping The package’s files themselves can be inspected at http://mirror.ctan.org/graphics/a2ping/

a2ping – Advanced PS, PDF, EPS converter
a2ping is a Perl script command line utility written for Unix that converts many raster image and vector graphics formats to EPS or PDF and other page description formats. Accepted input file formats are: PS (PostScript), EPS, PDF, PNG, JPEG, TIFF, PNM, BMP, GIF, LBM, XPM, PCX, TGA. Accepted output formats are: EPS, PCL5, PDF, PDF1, PBM, PGM, PPM, PS, markedEPS, markedPS, PNG, XWD, BMP, TIFF, JPEG, GIF, XPM. a2ping delegates the low-level work to Ghostscript (GS), pdftops and sam2p. a2ping fixes many glitches during the EPS to EPS conversion, so its output is often more compatible and better embeddable than its input.
