PS2PS(1) Ghostscript Tools PS2PS(1)

NAME ps2ps, eps2eps - Ghostscript PostScript "distiller"

SYNOPSIS ps2ps [ options ] input.ps output.ps eps2eps [ options ] input.eps output.eps

DESCRIPTION ps2ps uses gs(1) to convert PostScript(tm) file "input.ps" to simpler, normalized and (usually) faster PostScript in "output.ps". Normally the output is allowed to use PostScript Level 2 or Level 3 constructs, but the -dLanguageLevel=1 option restricts the output to Level 1.

eps2eps performs the equivalent optimization for Encapsulated PostScript (EPS) files.

Both accept any general Ghostscript command line options, and respec- tively options specific to the pswrite and epswrite devices.

FILES Run "gs -h" to find the location of Ghostscript documentation on your system, from which you can get more details.

BUGS The pswrite device used by both ps2ps and eps2eps produces much lower level output than is desirable. Use with caution.
