I'm trying to merge eps files into a pdf file using GS, however, I cannot get it to put multiple eps files without page breaks in between even if original files are small. The command I'm using is:

gs -dBATCH -dNOPAUSE -q -sDEVICE=pdfwrite -sOutputFile=out_file [list of eps files...]

I decided to write a simple script to generate a tex file that includes eps file arguments (using \includegraphics[width=\columnwidth]{arg1.eps} ...). Then using latex, and dvipdf I can get a pdf file with multiple eps files on a page.


I merged a handful of pdf's into a single document using pdftk *.pdf output all.pdf. So that leaves you with a converting EPS documents to PDF: How to convert PDF to EPS?

  • Does it merge multiple pdf's into a single page? – perreal Apr 18 '12 at 16:08
  • @perreal No, pdftk does not merge multiple pages into one single page - except the background and stamp operation, but they are for other purposes. – jofel Apr 19 '12 at 8:08
