PDF to EPS Conversion

Some vector tools can export figures only to the PDF format. If you need the figures in the EPS format, then one possible option for the PDF-to-EPS conversion is pdftops. This tool ships with the Xpdf package.

To convert a PDF to EPS use the -eps parameter:

$ pdftops -eps Foo.pdf

Xpdf can be downloaded separately (here) or as a part of the GNUWin32 universe (here).
