DESCRIPTION

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) files.

The three scripts differ as follows:
- ps2pdf12 will always produce PDF 1.2 output (Acrobat 3-and-later compatible).
- ps2pdf13 will always produce PDF 1.3 output (Acrobat 4-and-later compatible).
- ps2pdf per se currently produces PDF 1.2 output (Acrobat 3-and-later 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.
