Image Magick's display. You can try it in your Mac: open X11, in its
Terminal open display; a `` Browse and Select File'' window appears;
open your EPS file and a new window appears with menus: choose
Transform -> Crop (there is a Help for this Crop). Crop the file,
open it with Preview and you'll see it's in fact cropped.
