This is a bash shell script which converts some .pstex and .pstex_t sources to the following objects:
• A stand-alone EPS-file: *-standalone.eps
• A stand-alone PDF-file: *-standalone.pdf
• Raw *.eps and *.pdf files displaying the graphics without embedded latex
• A latex file (not standalone) which can be included (\include{*.pstex_l}) in latex documents to generate the graphics object. Uses correct paths, strictly uses a *.eps source.
• A latex file *.pdftex_l similar to the above but using a *.pdf source.
Usage: as simple as
`pstex2epspdf name path`
, where
`name`
is the basename of the pstex file without the extention, and
`path`
is the path as seen from the LaTeX-compiler, including the final forward slash.
Example: suppose we have a main directory with the source tex-file. Graphics are stored in the
`figures`
subdirectory and contains a raw pstex source named
`original.pstex(_t)`
. We cd into figures, and type
`pstex2epspdf original figures/`
. We cd back into the main directory, and we can now edit our source tex-file to include stuff like
`\includegraphics{figures/original-standalone}`
, or when we are using costum fonts or something like that, we can opt for
`\include{figures/original.pstex_l}`
when using normal LaTeX, or
`\include{figures/original.pdftex_l}`
when using pdfLaTeX.
