       epstopdf, repstopdf - convert an EPS file to PDF


       epstopdf [options] [epsfile [pdffile.pdf]]


       By  default,  epstopdf converts the input PostScript file to PDF, using

       Epstopdf transforms the Encapsulated PostScript file epsfile (or  stan-
       dard  input)  so  that it is guaranteed to start at the 0,0 coordinate,
       and it sets a page  size  exactly  corresponding  to  the  BoundingBox.
       Thus, the result needs no cropping, and the PDF MediaBox is correct.

       By  default,  the  output  name  is  the  input name with any extension
       replaced by .pdf.  An output name ending with .pdf can also be given as
       a second argument on the command line, or the --outfile (-o) option can
       be used with any name.

       PJL commands at the start of a file are removed.  DOS EPS binary  files
       (TN 5002) are supported.

       If  the bounding box in the input is incorrect, of course there will be
       resulting problems.


       Options may start with either "-" or "--",  and  may  be  unambiguously
       abbreviated.   It  is  best  to  use the full option name in scripts to
       avoid possible collisions with new options in the future.

       General script options:

       --help display help message and exit

              display version information and exit

              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'.

              write debugging info (default: false).

              scan ExactBoundingBox (default: false).

              read  standard input and (unless --outfile is given) write stan-
              dard output (default: false).

              run Ghostscript (default: true).  With --nogs, output (to  stan-
              dard  output  by  default) the PostScript that would normally be
              converted;  that  is,  the  input  PostScript  as  modified   by

              scan HiresBoundingBox (default: false).

              turn  on  restricted  mode  (default:  [true for repstopdf, else
              false]); this forbids the use of --gscmd and other  options  and
              imposes  restrictions on the input and output file names accord-
              ing to the values of openin_any and openout_any (see  the  Web2c

       Options for Ghostscript (more info below):

              pipe output to val (default: [gswin32c on Windows, else gs])

              include val as one argument in the gs command (can be repeated).

              split val at whitespace and include each resulting  word  as  an
              argument in the gs command (can be repeated).

              set  AutoRotatePages  (default:  None);  recognized val choices:
              None, All, PageByPage.  For EPS files, PageByPage is  equivalent
              to All.

              use  compression  in  the output (default: true); if turned off,
              passes -dUseFlateCompression=false.

              use -sDEVICE=dev (default: pdfwrite); not allowed in  restricted

              embed fonts (default: true); passes -dMaxSubsetPct=100 -dSubset-
              Fonts=true -dEmbedAllFonts=true.

              grayscale output  (default:  false);  passes  -sColorConversion-
              Strategy=Gray -dProcessColorModel=/DeviceGray.

              use  -dPDFSETTINGS=/val  (default is `prepress' if --embed, else
              empty); recognized val choices:  screen,  ebook,  printer,  pre-
              press, default.

              use -q, a.k.a. -dQUIET (default: false).

       --res=dpi, dpixdpi
              set  image  resolution  (default:  [use gs default]); ignored if
              --debug is set.

              use -d(NO)QUIET (default: true).

       In addition to the specific options above,  additional  options  to  be
       used with gs can be specified with either or both of the two cumulative
       options --gsopts and --gsopt.

       --gsopts takes a single string of options, which  is  split  at  white-
       space,  each resulting word then added to the gs command line individu-

       --gsopt adds its argument as a single option to the  gs  command  line.
       It  can  be  used  multiple times to specify options separately, and is
       necessary if an option or its value contains whitespace.

       In restricted mode, options are limited to those with names and  values
       known  to  be  safe.   Some  options taking booleans, integers or fixed
       names are allowed, those taking general strings are not.


       These examples all equivalently convert `test.eps' to `test.pdf':
       epstopdf test.eps
       epstopdf test.eps test.pdf
       cat test.eps | epstopdf --filter >test.pdf
       cat test.eps | epstopdf -f -o=test.pdf

       Example for using HiResBoundingBox instead of BoundingBox:
       epstopdf --hires test.eps

       Example for epstopdf's attempt at correcting PostScript:
       $program --nogs >

       In all cases, you can add --debug (-d) to see more about what  epstopdf
       is doing.


       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.
