I went round in circles with this one. I don't think pdflatex works with
EPS files (though I might be wrong).

I do what I think Shige is suggesting, which is to convert the EPS into
a PDF and use this with pdflatex. With this method, I don't have to use
-graph2tex- and I can simply use "graph export  [file].eps".

Alternatively, perhaps you might try running latex (not pdflatex) with
your tex coding to create a DVI file. You can then convert the DVI file
to PDF if you like.

Good luck!

Dom.

Hi Clive,

You can try to convert your eps graphics files into pdf files by
"epstopdf" (which is part of MikTeX defual installation).
