NAMEps2ps, eps2eps - Ghostscript PostScript "distiller"
SYNOPSISps2ps [ options ] input output.ps
eps2eps [ options ] input output.eps
DESCRIPTIONps2ps uses gs(1) to convert PostScript(tm) or PDF(tm) file "input" to simpler, normalized and (usually) faster PostScript in "output.ps". The output is level 2 DSC 3.0 conforming PostScript.
eps2eps performs the equivalent optimization, creating Encapsulated PostScript (EPS) files. NB, despite the name, the input need not be an EPS file, PostScript or indeed PDF files are equally acceptable.
FILESRun "gs -h" to find the location of Ghostscript documentation on your system, from which you can get more details.
