Kit,

you are certainly right.

However, this may be a somewhat "suboptimal" solution if you rely on some features that require PDF output -- for example the pdfsync package...

Best,
Daniel





There is no need to convert .eps to .pdf. Just specify in your LaTeX front end that you want to use TeX and Ghostscript rather than Pdftex.

e.g.

\begin{figure}[ht]
\begin{center}
\epsfig{file=fig9_1}
\end{center}
\caption{Blah blah.}
\label{fig9_1}
\end{figure}

With your LaTeX distribution comes a tool called --epstopdf--. You can
use it to convert EPS files into PDF.

Another option is to use the epstopdf package. You include it in
your .tex document and it calls the epstopdf program at runtime --
which is quite convenient if you have a lot of graphs in your document.
