purifyeps is a perl script that uses pstoedit and mpost to 'purify' (modify)
*.eps graphics files used by dvips so that they can also be used by pdflatex.
This removes the need to maintain graphics files in two different formats when
both *.ps and *.pdf documents must be produced.   A preamble to the LaTeX file
that tells pdflatex to interpret the purified *.eps files as 'mps' format is
all that is needed for pdflatex to work (see the purifyeps manpage for the
text of this preamble, or add '\include{eps2mps}' to the preamble of the
LaTeX document).  See the pstoedit website http://www.pstoedit.net/pstoedit
for details of the required pstoedit tool.
