Problem: The difference between EPS files and other PostScript files

Solution or Workaround

How do EPS files differ from other PostScript files?


EPS files are designed for transferring images between applications, and therefore are written in a slightly different format than the typical PostScript files sent to an output device. Because EPS files are designed to be included within a document, they do not have any of the page configuration information necessary to print the image. Some EPS files can be plotted if a SHOWPAGE command is appended to the file.
