Just want to follow up my previous question. I adopted Siep
Kroonenberg's suggestion and installed the xpdf suite. There's a
pointer to the Mac OS X .pkg disk image file at the XPDF website
download section; alternatively, here's the direct link:
It comes with a nice installer.
After installation, you type the following command in terminal
pdftops -eps myfile.pdf
then it generates a myfile.eps in the same directory. The conversion
is done in a very fast manner -- actually the first time I tried it, I
wouldn't even notice that it took any split of second to do the job
[admittedly my test file was very small].
The output is excellent. The only pity is that, it seems there's no
way to add preview picture, but I am not complaining. :-)
