pstoedit program converts Postscript and PDF files to other vector graphic formats so that they can be edited graphically.Supported FormatsCurrently pstoedit can generate the following major formats: · Tgif .obj format (for tgif version >= 3) · .fig format for xfig · pdf - Adobe\'s Portable Document Format · gnuplot format · Flattened PostScript (with or without Bezier curves)· DXF - CAD exchange format · LWO - LightWave 3D · RIB - RenderMan · RPL - Real3D · Java 1 or Java 2 applet · Idraw format (in fact a special form of EPS that idraw can read)· Tcl/Tk· HPGL· AI (Adobe Illustrator) (based on ps2ai.ps - not a real pstoedit driver - see notes below and manual)· Windows Meta Files (WMF) (Windows 9x/NT only) · Enhanced Windows Meta Files (EMF) (Windows 9x/NT only)· OS/2 meta files (OS/2 only) · PIC format for troff/groff· MetaPost format for usage with TeX/LaTeX· LaTeX2e picture· Kontour· GNU Metafile (plotutils / libplot)· Skencil( http://www.skencil.org )· Mathematica· via ImageMagick to any format supported by ImageMagick· SWFWhat\'s New in This Release: [ read full changelog ]· added an option (-gs) to specify the full path to GhostScript (under Windows - either the .exe or the DLL). This can be used by portable applications to direct pstoedit to use a specific GhostScript version.· Stanislav Brabec contributed several improvements to the PCB driver. See http://www.penguin.cz/~utx/pstoedit-pcb/ on how these can be useful.· Scott Pakin submitted several improvements to the mpost driver and the font substitution mechanism.· new driver for .vtk files e.g. for ParaView - http://www.paraview.org/ - but this is still a very basic version. Thanks to Mitesh Patel for initiating and testing.· new driver for cairo (http://cairographics.org/ ) contributed by Dan McMahill. This driver generates C-code which can be compiled and linked against the cairo libraries. See the contrib/cairo directory for an example.· several improvements on the DXF driver as suggested and sponsored by Markus Meyer.· because pstoedit may write its output to stdout, all output written by GhostScript to stdout is now redirected to stderr in order to avoid mixed output.· added a -q option to suppress the initial startup message of pstoedit. This can by useful when being called via a pipe, e.g. from inkscape. However, note that this does not suppress all output written to stderr - see also note above.· John Bowman fixed a number of problems related to clipping and image support for the Asymptote backend.· fixed a compilation problem with g++ V4.x.· new driver for gcode (.ngc files) (tested with emc see http://linuxcnc.org). Contributed by Lawrence Glaister.· some adaptations for newer versions of libming· fixed a line width problem for xfig format.· corrected the broken pstoedit.m4 - thanks to Ian Abbott· some minor code beautifying.
