Bmeps is a library and a command line tool for conversion of different bitmap 
graphics types to EPS.  It can produce EPS levels 1, 2 and 3. Level 2 allows the 
use of run-length compression and ASCII-85-encoding instead of 
ASCII-Hex-encoding, while level 3 allows the use of flate compression. TIFF- and 
PNG-alpha channels can be converted into EPS level 3 image masks. Modified dvips 
sources are included to allow image conversion directly from dvips.
