The .bb file is created automatically by the Illustrator plug-in. Ross 
Moore and Wendy McKay describe the creation and use of .bb files with 
WARMreader in various publications. See:


WARMFigToPDF is usable without a .bb file or any WARMreader "stuff". 
Simply take a .ps (PostScript) file and drag it onto WARMFigToPDF and 
it will find the proper bounding box and create an .eps and .pdf file 
for you.
