When reporting bugs, please include an input file and command line
options, so the problem can be reproduced.

Various test files and a Makefile to exercise them are in the source
repository, which is currently a subdirectory of the texlive Subversion
repo, purely for the developers' convenience:

The test-binary and test-bin2 files there were supplied by Akira Kakuto and
Reinhard Kotucha.  They contain binary data.  They are public domain.

The test-binhdr* files were supplied by Martin von Gagern, constructed
as follows.  They contain binary junk before the EPS starts.  We also
use these to test different line endings.  These files are public domain.

{ echo -e '%Some\000binary\001comment'; dot -Tps <<< 'digraph{a->b}'; }
  > test-binhdr-lf.eps
tr $'\n' $'\r' <test-binhdr-lf.eps >test-binhdr-cr.ps
unix2dos <test-binhdr-lf.eps >test-binhdr-cr.ps

ep­stopdf – Con­vert EPS to PDF us­ing Ghostscript

Ep­stopdf is a Perl script that con­verts an EPS file to an ‘en­cap­su­lated’ PDF file (a sin­gle page file whose me­dia box is the same as the orig­i­nal EPS’s bound­ing box). The re­sult­ing file suit­able for in­clu­sion by pdf as an im­age. The script is adapted to run both on Win­dows and on Unix-alike sys­tems.

The script makes use of Ghostscript for the ac­tual con­ver­sion to PDF. It as­sumes Ghostscript ver­sion 6.51 or later, and (by de­fault) sup­presses its au­to­matic ro­ta­tion of pages where most of the text is not hor­i­zon­tal.

users may make use of the ep­stopdf pack­age, which will run the ep­stopdf script “on the fly”, thus giv­ing the il­lu­sion that pdf is ac­cept­ing EPS graphic files.
