Users may view the package's catalogue entry at http://www.tex.ac.uk/tex-archive/help/Catalogue/pst2pdf.html or browse the package's directory at http://www.tex.ac.uk/tex-archive/graphics/pstricks/contrib/pst2pdf/ The catalogue entry will change (somewhat) overnight tonight.

pst2pdf – A script to compile PSTricks documents via pdf

The script extracts the preamble of the document and runs all

\begin{pspicture}...\end{pspicture} and

separately through with the same preamble as the original document; thus it creates EPS, PNG and PDF files of these snippets. In a final pdf run the script replaces the environments with \includegraphics to include the processed snippets.

Detail documentation is acquired from the document itself via Perldoc.
