       epstopdf, repstopdf - convert an EPS file to PDF


       epstopdf [options] [epsfile]


       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.


              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.

              use compression (default: on).

              write debugging info (default: off).

              embed fonts (default: on).

              scan ExactBoundingBox (default: off).

              read  standard input and (unless --outfile is given) write standard output(default:

              run Ghostscript (default: on).

              scan HiresBoundingBox (default: off).

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

              set image resolution (default: [use gs default])

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

              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,

       Examples which produce "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 >


       The case of "%%BoundingBox: (atend)" when input is not seekable (e.g., from a pipe) is not
