DESCRIPTION
       DOS EPS Binary File Format

       A Encapsulated PostScript (EPS) file can also given in a special binary
       format to support the inclusion of a thumbnail. The file format starts
       with a binary header that contains the positions of the possible sec-
       tions:

       * Postscript (PS)
       * Windows Metafile Format (WMF)
       * Tag Image File Format (TIFF)

       The PS section must be present and either the WMF file or the TIFF file
       should be given.

OPTIONS
       --eps-file=<file>
           The PS section is written to <file>. The output file must be dif-
           ferent from the input file.

       --wmf-file=<file>
           The WMF section is written to <file> if present. The output file
           must be different from the input file.

       --tiff-file=<file>
           The TIFF section is written to <file> if present. The output file
           must be different from the input file.

       --man
           Prints manual page.

       --version
           Print version identification and exit.

EXAMPLES
       The following command extracts the PS section from file test.eps and
       stores the result in file test-ps.eps:

           dosepsbin --eps-file test-ps.eps test.eps
