e2pall - Man Page

convert all EPS files in a LaTeX document to PDF


e2pall TEXFILE


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.


Email bug reports to <https://lists.tug.org/tex-k> (public mailing list).

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
