Roland Bless has submitted an update of support/ps2eps
he writes of it:
> ps2eps v1.35 in CTAN:support/ps2eps
> ps2eps is a tool to produce Encapsulated PostScript Files (EPS/EPSF)
> from usual one-paged Postscript documents. It calculates correct
> Bounding Boxes for those EPS files and filters some special postscript
> command sequences that can produce errorneous results on printers.
> You need:
> - perl (an interpreter for the perl language, see http://www.perl.com)
> - ghostscript (an interpreter/raster image processor
> for the PostScript language,
> see http://www.cs.wisc.edu/~ghost/)
> - maybe an ANSI-C compiler if you don't use Linux, Solaris, Digital
> Unix, HP-UX or Windows 9x/NT/2000.
> The program is licensed under gpl.
> Important changes since version 1.28:
> - Improved processing of files with leading or trailing binary code
> - Improved processing of files with embedded binary coded images
> - Removes gabby diagnostic output from Adobe Printer Driver (see
> variable removeADO)
> - Corrected handling of existing %%BoundingBox comments. Now it
> takes the last one seen. Should esp. work with %%BoundingBox:
> (atend) usage...
> - Fixed case sensitiveness when checking for suffix replacement
> (thanks to Erik J=F8rgensen)
> - Heuristic added for finding end of file by counting %%EOF comments.
> Now correctly treats already embedded EPS, too.
> Usually only trailing garbage (e.g., PCL control sequences) follows
> last %%EOF. However, sometimes the last %%EOF may be missing.
> Therefore, the behavior is switchable by new -E option.
> - New first line of code for getting rid of the #! comment
> - EOF handling corrected, allowing better handling of already
> embedded eps files
> - New -P option to allow selective removal of embedded preview
> images (was previously default)
> - Preview images were not filtered in the prolog section (now
> corrected with -P)
> - New -N option to prevent inclusion of any surrounding postscript code
