[Mac OS X TeX] eps and pdftex

There have been several posts today about including eps files in pdftex. Pdftex can include tiff, jpg and pdf images directly. If you have an eps file you must
convert it to pdf using the epstopdf program. This program modifies the
original eps file and then calls ps2pdf to generate a pdf file. Ps2pdf calls
ghostscript, so you must have it installed on your computer. The epstopdf
script will not handle eps files with the bounding box info at the end, like
eps files from Mathematica.

My epstopdf, combined with MacGhostview (which includes macps2pdf), handles all eps files, even those created with Mathematica.
