ps2pdfwr - Man Page

Convert PostScript to PDF without specifying CompatibilityLevel, using ghostscript


ps2pdfwr  [options...] {input.[e]ps|-} [output.pdf|-]


This wrapper script invokes gs(1) with following arguments

-q -dNOPAUSE -dBATCH -sDEVICE=pdfwrite

as well as the appropriate -dOutputFile argument, all preceded and followed by any command-line arguments. Finally, the security option -dSAFER is prepended before all the other options (This is now redundant as "SAFER" is now the default, but the option does no harm).

The version-specific ps2pdf scripts all invoke this one with the addition of the respective compatibility level option.
