PS2PS(1) Ghostscript Tools PS2PS(1)NAME
ps2ps, eps2eps - Ghostscript PostScript "distiller"
ps2ps [ options ] input.ps output.ps
eps2eps [ options ] input.eps output.eps
ps2ps uses gs(1) to convert PostScript(tm) file "input.ps" to simpler,
normalized and (usually) faster PostScript in "output.ps". Normally
the output is allowed to use PostScript Level 2 or Level 3 constructs,
but the -dLanguageLevel=1 option restricts the output to Level 1.
eps2eps performs the equivalent optimization for Encapsulated Post‐
Script (EPS) files.
Both accept any general Ghostscript command line options, and respec‐
tively options specific to the pswrite and epswrite devices.
Run "gs -h" to find the location of Ghostscript documentation on your
system, from which you can get more details.
The pswrite device used by both ps2ps and eps2eps produces much lower
level output than is desirable. Use with caution.
