purifyeps – Make EPS work with both /dvips and pdf

While pdf has a num­ber of nice fea­tures, its pri­mary short­com­ing rel­a­tive to stan­dard +dvips is that it is un­able to read or­di­nary En­cap­su­lated PostScript (EPS) files, the most com­mon graph­ics for­mat in the world. Pu­ri­fyeps con­verts EPS files into a ‘pu­ri­fied’ form that can be read by both +dvips and pdf. The trick is that the stan­dard graph­ics pack­ages can parse -pro­duced EPS di­rectly. Hence, pu­ri­fyeps need only con­vert an ar­bi­trary EPS file into the same styl­ized for­mat that out­puts.
