NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

       ps2pdf - Convert PostScript to PDF using ghostscript
       ps2pdf12  - Convert PostScript to PDF 1.2 (Acrobat 3-and-later compatible)
 using ghostscript
       ps2pdf13 - Convert PostScript to PDF 1.3 (Acrobat 4-and-later  compatible)
 using ghostscript

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

       ps2pdf  [options...] (input.[e]ps|-) [output.pdf|-]
       ps2pdf12  [options...] (input.[e]ps|-) [output.pdf|-]
       ps2pdf13  [options...] (input.[e]ps|-) [output.pdf|-]

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       The  ps2pdf  scripts  are  work-alikes for nearly all the functionality
       (but not the user interface) of Adobe's Acrobat(TM) Distiller(TM) product:
  they  convert  PostScript files to Portable Document Format (PDF)

       The three scripts differ as follows:

       -      ps2pdf12 will always produce PDF 1.2 output (Acrobat 3-and-later

       -      ps2pdf13 will always produce PDF 1.3 output (Acrobat 4-and-later

       -      ps2pdf per se currently produces PDF 1.2 output (Acrobat	3-andlater
  compatible).  However,  this may change in the future. If
	      you care about  the  compatibility  level  of  the  output,  use
	      ps2pdf12	or  ps2pdf13, or use the -dCompatibility=1.x switch in
	      the command line.

       There are some limitations in ps2pdf's conversion. See the  HTML  documentation
 for more information.
