dosepsbin – Deal with DOS binary EPS files

A En­cap­su­lated PostScript (EPS) file may given in a spe­cial bi­nary for­mat to sup­port the in­clu­sion of a thumb­nail. This file for­mat, com­monly known as DOS EPS for­mat starts with a bi­nary header that con­tains the po­si­tions of the pos­si­ble sec­tions:

  • Postscript (PS);
  • Win­dows Metafile For­mat (WMF); and
  • Tag Image File For­mat (TIFF).
The PS sec­tion must be present and ei­ther the WMF file or the TIFF file should be given.

The pack­age pro­vides a Perl pro­gram that will ex­tract any of the sec­tions of such a file, in par­tic­u­lar pro­vid­ing a ‘text’-form EPS file for use with (La)TeX.
