Summary description:  Convert EPS to ‘encapsulated’ PDF using Ghostscript

Announcement text:

 epstopdf is a Perl script that converts EPS to PDF (or other formats)
 using (by default) Ghostscript.

 Changes in this version:

 New option --gray to grayscale output, thanks to William Bader; it
   passes -sColorConversionStrategy=Gray -dProcessColorModel=/DeviceGray
   to Ghostscript.

 The option --device is disallowed in restricted mode (previously some
   devices were allowed); it is still accepted (with any value) in
   non-restricted mode.
