pst2pdf is a Perl script which isolates all PostScript or
PSTricks related parts of the TeX document into single
LaTeX files, for which an eps and pdf image is created. 
The pdf ones are then imported in a last pdflatex run
for the pdf output of the main document. The eps and
pdf files are saved in a subdirectory images.

Syntax: pst2pdf.pl file[.tex] [options] 

alternative: perl pst2pdf.pl file[.tex] [options]

Some restrictions:

The pspicture environment can be nested, the postscript one NOT! 
pspicture can be inside of a postscript environment, but 
not vice versa.

The postscript environment should be used for all other
PostScript related commands, which are not part of
a pspicture environment, e.g. nodes inside normal text.

pst2pdf creates a document file-pdf.tex for use with
pdflatex, which then creates file-pdf.pdf. The created
images are named file-fig-<No>.pdf

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.
