EPSTOPDF(1)                                                        EPSTOPDF(1)



NAME
       epstopdf - convert an EPS file to PDF

SYNOPSIS
       epstopdf [options] epsfile

DESCRIPTION
       epstopdf transforms the Encapsulated PostScript file epsfile so that it is guaranteed to start at the 0,0 coor-
       dinate, 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.  The result is piped to Ghostscript
       and a PDF version written.

       If the bounding box is not right, of course, you have problems...

OPTIONS
       --outfile=file
              write result to file instead of standard output.

       --[no]filter
              read standard input   (default: --nofilter).

       --[no]gs
              run ghostscript       (default: --gs).

       --[no]compress
              use compression       (default: --compress).

       --[no]hires
              scan HiresBoundingBox (default: --nohires).

       --[no]exact
              scan ExactBoundingBox (default: --noexact).

       --[no]debug
              debug informations    (default: --nodebug).

       --help print usage

EXAMPLE
       Examples for producing "test.pdf":

       epstopdf test.eps
       produce postscript | epstopdf --filter >test.pdf
       produce postscript | epstopdf -f -d -o=test.pdf

       Example: look for HiresBoundingBox and produce corrected PostScript:

       epstopdf -d --nogs -hires test.ps>testcorr.ps

BUGS
       The only thing I have not allowed for is the case of "%%BoundingBox: (atend)", which is more complicated.
