       epstopdf, repstopdf - convert an EPS file to PDF

       epstopdf [options] [epsfile]

       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.

       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,
       though, 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: off).

              scan ExactBoundingBox (default: off).

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

              run Ghostscript (default: on).  With --nogs, output (to standard
              output by default) the PostScript that would  normally  be  con-
              verted; that is, the input PostScript as modified by epstopdf.

              scan HiresBoundingBox (default: off).

              turn on restricted mode (default: [on for repstopdf, else off]);
              this forbids the use of --gscmd and --gsopt and imposes restric-
              tions on the input and output file names according to the values
              of  openin_any  and   openout_any   (see   the   Web2c   manual,

       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, include each resulting word as an argu-
              ment 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: on).

              use  -sDEVICE=dev  (default:  pdfwrite);  not  all  devices  are
              allowed in restricted mode.

              embed fonts (default: on).

              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: off).

       --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.

       Examples all equivalently converting `test.eps' to `test.pdf':
       epstopdf test.eps
       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 producing epstopdf's attempt at corrected PostScript:
       $program --nogs test.ps >testcorr.ps

       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  tex-k@tug.org.   When
       reporting  bugs,  please  include  an  input  file and the command line
       options specified, so the problem can be reproduced.
