Convert PS to PDF

Convert all the Postscript PS files in the current directory to Adobe Acrobat PDF format like this:

  • for i in *.ps; do ps2pdf $i; done

Or, with some extra options, which, hopefully, will provide a better result:

  • for i in *.ps; do ps2pdf -sPAPERSIZE=a4 -dOptimize=true -dEmbedAllFonts=true -dUseFlateCompression=true -dPDFSETTINGS=/printer $i; done

You need to have Ghostscript installed to do this.
