> efficiently, and everything is fine to this end.
> Now I want to convert part of the graphs to .eps format, in order to

> 1) The bounding box is not given in integers, but as i.e. "0.000 0.000
> 432.000 288.000". This causes ghostview/-script to complain. It should be
> "0 0 432 288".
> 2) The bounding box is calculated too large, leaving white space below the
> graph. In my case this is about 1/3 of the whole picture.
