USAGE: latex2png [-d density] [-h] [-k] [-c] [-g] [-m] [-H home dir] file[.tex|.eps]
The latex2png command converts a LaTeX file into a PNG image. The first page is translated into an image at the specified resolution. latex2png can also be used to convert encapsulated postscript (EPS) files to PNG images.
