epstopdf, repstopdf - convert an EPS file to PDF
2. SYNOPSIS ▲
epstopdf [options] [epsfile]
3. DESCRIPTION ▲
epstopdf transforms the Encapsulated PostScript file epsfile (or standard input) so that it is guaranteed to start at the 0,0 coordinate, and it sets a page size exactly corresponding to the BoundingBox. This means that when Ghostscript renders it, the result needs no cropping, and the PDF MediaBox is correct. By default, the result is piped to Ghostscript and a PDF version written.
If the bounding box is not right, of course, there are problems.
4. OPTIONS ▲
--outfile=file write result to file. If this option is not given, and --nogs or --filter is specified, write to standard output; otherwise, the default is to construct the output file name by replacing any extension in the input file with .pdf.
--[no]compress use compression (default: on).
--[no]debug write debugging info (default: off).
--[no]embed embed fonts (default: on).
--[no]exact scan ExactBoundingBox (default: off).
--[no]filter read standard input and (unless --outfile is given) write standard output(default: off).
--[no]gs run Ghostscript (default: on).
--[no]hires scan HiresBoundingBox (default: off).
--gscmd=val pipe output to val (default: [gswin32c on Windows, else gs])
--res=dpi set image resolution (default: [use gs default])
--autorotate=val set AutoRotatePages (default: None); recognized val choices: None, All, PageByPage. For EPS files, PageByPage is equivalent to All.
--restricted=val turn on restricted mode (default: [on for repstopdf, else off]); this forbids the use of --gscmd and imposes restrictions on the input and output file names according to the values of openin_any and openout_any (see the Web2c manual, http://tug.org/web2c).
--help display help message and exit
--version display version information and exit
5. EXAMPLES ▲
Examples which produce "test.pdf":
epstopdf test.eps produce postscript
>test.pdf produce postscript
Example: look for HiresBoundingBox and produce corrected PostScript:
6. BUGS ▲
The case of "%%BoundingBox: (atend)" when input is not seekable (e.g., from a pipe) is not supported.
Report bugs in the program or this man page to . When reporting bugs, please include an input file and the command line options specified, so the problem can be reproduced.
