a2ping: convert image and vector graphics to compatible EPS and PDF
a2ping is a UNIX command line utility written in Perl that converts many
raster image and vector graphics formats to EPS or PDF and other page
description formats. Accepted input file formats are: PS (PostScript), EPS,
PDF, PNG, JPEG, TIFF, PNM, BMP, GIF, LBM, XPM, PCX, TGA. Accepted output
formats are: EPS, PCL5, PDF, PDF1, PBM, PGM, PPM, PS, markedEPS, markedPS,
PNG, XWD, BMP, TIFF, JPEG, GIF, XPM. a2ping delegates the low-level
work to Ghostscript (GS), pdftops and sam2p. a2ping fixes many glitches
during the EPS to EPS conversion, so its output is often more compatible
and better embeddable than its input.
Installation: copy the file a2ping.pl to a2ping on your $PATH.
