e2pall man page

e2pall — convert all EPS files in a LaTeX document to PDF

Synopsis

e2pall TEXFILE

Description

e2pall searches through TEXFILE for \includegraphics commands to find the base names of image files. When it finds one, e2pall runs epstopdf(1) to create a PDF file from the EPS file.

e2pall will check to be sure that an existing PDF file is up-to-date with the EPS file, and will not run epstopdf(1) if the PDF file is newer than the EPS file.

Bugs

Seems to be broken

Cannot handle \input{filename} or \includegraphics{filename} split over more than one line

Must be run from same directory as the LaTeX file

Does not look down $TEXINPUTS

Cannot handle documents that use \include commands

Assumes all files included with \includegraphics are EPS files
