ps2pdf − Convert PostScript to PDF using ghostscript
ps2pdf12 − Convert PostScript to PDF 1.2 (Acrobat 3‐and‐
later compatible) using ghostscript
ps2pdf13 − Convert PostScript to PDF 1.3 (Acrobat 4‐and‐
later compatible) using ghostscript

ps2pdf  [options...] {input.[e]ps|‐} [output.pdf|‐]
ps2pdf12  [options...] {input.[e]ps|‐} [output.pdf|‐]
ps2pdf13  [options...] {input.[e]ps|‐} [output.pdf|‐]

The ps2pdf scripts are work‐alikes for nearly all the
functionality (but not the user interface) of Adobe’s
Acrobat Distiller product: they convert PostScript files to
Portable Document Format (PDF) files.

     The three scripts differ as follows:

‐    ps2pdf12 will always produce PDF 1.2 output (Acrobat
     3‐and‐later compatible).

‐    ps2pdf13 will always produce PDF 1.3 output (Acrobat
     4‐and‐later compatible).

‐    ps2pdf per se currently produces PDF 1.2 output
     (Acrobat 3‐and‐later compatible). However, this may
     change in the future. If you care about the
     compatibility level of the output, use ps2pdf12 or or
     use the −dCompatibility=1.x switch in the command line.

     There are some limitations in conversion. See the HTML
documentation for more information.
