ps4pdf – Use PostScript commands inside a pdf document

This package provides a way to use PostScript commands (e.g., PSTricks graphics, PSfrag replacements, EPS graphics) inside a pdf processed document. You need recent versions of the packages preview, ifpdf, ifvtex and a new base installation. All PostScript related commands, including `\usepackage', must be a parameter of the 'PSforPDF' macro. For details see the test file 'ps4pdf-test.tex'. The PDF document is generated via dvips and ps2pdf.

This package is now deprecated: it is recommended that users try pst-pdf instead.
